ATP3 Summer Workshops
Dear ABO member,
The Arizona Center for Algae Technology and Innovation (AzCATI) and the Culture Collection of Algae (UTEX), through the D.O.E.-sponsored Algae Testbed Public-Private-Partnership (ATP3), offer comprehensive workshops on the cultivation of microalgae, strain selection, pilot-scale cultivation, harvesting and processing, and analysis of valuable oils and co-products.
The next ATP3 workshop, “Algal Culture Management and Strain Selection”, will take place the week of August 19-23, 2013 at The University of Texas at Austin. Presentations will cover the fundamentals of isolating and identifying microalgae, handling and managing microalgal cultures (including methods for cryopreservation), screening strains for desirable characteristics, genetically improving strains, and analysis of lipids and higher-value products.
These will be very useful workshops for those in the industry looking for overviews of the latest methods, as well as for advanced students and trainees. Enrollment is limited so sign up soon. We hope to see you there!
