Essential Science: Why algae may be the superfood of 2017 The production of biocompounds from microalgae is seen by one research consortium as providing a solution for world hunger, as well as producing a nutritional food source in general. To do so requires an improved biotechnological solution. The research consortium behind the project is called “Algae for a Healthy World.” The project is at its early stages, following a late 2016 launch, with discussions taking place over the appropriate biotechnological tools needed to improve and to optimize the production of algal biomass of marine origin. http://www.digitaljournal.com/tech-and-science/science/essential-science-why-algae-may-be-the-super-food-of-2017/article/482806
