Title Cited by Year Spirulina platensis arthrospira: Problems in developing the biotechnology of algal biomass production. This page was last edited on 20 Decemberat He took part in many international meetings presenting keynote lectures related to the potential of algal biotechnology as a tool in avigac development of drylands.

The fatty acid composition of Spirulina -like cyanobacteria as a tool avigwd chemotaxonomy. Problems in developing the biotechnology of algal biomass production. While, on the basis of morphology alone, these strains could not be distinguished from Spirulina, their fatty acid composition The metabolic plasticity of the response of this cyanobacterium to vonzhak environmental stimuli is demonstrated in the natural environment, but is also well-expressed in the maintenance of highly productive monoculture in intensive outdoor cultivation systems.


Biotechnology for Algal Mass Cultivation. Acclimation to low temperature of two Arthrospira platensis Cyanobacteria strains involves down-regulation of PSII and improved resistance to photoinhibition.

Physico-chemical parameters influencing DNase activity of the cyanobacterium Spirulina platensis. Light acclimation and photoinhibition in three Spirulina platensis isolates.

Log In Sign Up. New articles by this author. Fatty acid composition of Spirulina strains grown under various environmental conditions Z Cohen, A Vonshak, A Richmond Phytochemistry 26 zvigad, The concept was developed as part of the approach that sustainable development of drylands requires the need to develop new innovative biotechnologies that will make use of the environmental condition of drylands and increase the water use efficiency as compared to conventional agriculture methodologies.
