Postdoctoral position in the Moroney lab at LSU

A postdoctoral position in the area of plant and algal molecular biology/biochemistry is available in the laboratory of James Moroney at Louisiana State University. Current areas of research include the CO2 concentrating mechanism (CCM) of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii and the metabolic roles of carbonic anhydrases in plants and algae. In particular, components of the CCM will … Continued

Chromochloris zofingiensis data now available on Phytozome

Chromochloris zofingiensis is a unicellular green alga in the class Chlorophyceae, and is closely related to the model alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. Interest in C. zofingiensis derives in part from its ability to accumulate large amounts of triacylglycerols in cytoplasmic lipid bodies, which gives it promising commercial potential as a biofuel feedstock. Additionally, C. zofingiensis is … Continued
