We recently released ~17,000 additional mutants. Together with mutants released before, the total number of mutants available is now ~37,000, covering 73% of the Chlamydomonas genome! A manuscript describing the pilot collection is here(link is external). Most of the mutants available (specifically, mutants labeled LMJ.RY0402.******) are from a second generation library, not described in this … Continued
Cilia 2016 4 – 7 October 2016 Amsterdam, The Netherlands Since 2000, major discoveries in cilia biology have been achieved in a diversity of disciplines, including cellular and molecular biology, genetics, medicine and biophysics. This young field is evolving quickly and major breakthroughs occur on a regular basis. The EMBO Conference, Cilia 2016, will … Continued

Postdoctoral position: Systems and synthetic biology of photosynthetic organisms Jonikas Lab, Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford, CA Photosynthetic organisms, our planet’s greatest chemists, form the foundations for human health by providing us with food, fuel, materials and drugs. Yet, our understanding of these organisms is in its infancy. Our laboratory aims to enable advances in sustainability by bringing systems and … Continued
I. Commercial Algae Production Methods and Technologies Algae can be made into nutraceutical Omega 3 EPA/DHA – astaxanthin, cosmetics, feeds, food and bioplastics. Commercially-minded algae researchers, algae producers and equipment companies join in collaborative discussions on the latest trends in commercial algae cultivation, harvesting and extraction methods. II. Wastewater Remediation Using Algae and Commercial Cultivation Using Secondary … Continued
We have recently found that when mutants in the CMJ030 (mt-) background are crossed to standard lab strain 21 gr (mt+), the “Sager strain”, high efficiency mating and zygote germination is obtained. Because 21 gr has a cell wall (CW15+) and it is wild-type for nitrate reductase (NIT+), it should be possible in a single … Continued
Dear Colleagues, Thank you for your support of the Chlamy Mutant Library project! We are pleased to announce that many more mutants are now available at the Chlamydomonas Resource Center. There are now over 20,000 mutants total, covering 10,301 genes (58% of the genome)! Strains can be searched and ordered through this website: https://www.chlamylibrary.org/ A manuscript describing … Continued
