About this book

This volume explores ongoing effects to develop marine organisms into commecially viable materials. The book deals with a range of topics, such as photobioreactors, industrial applications of chitosanases, carrageenans from red algae, anticoagulants from marine algae, anti HIV compounds from red algae, and biomass production as a source of energy by pyrolysis.


Characteristics of the polysaccharides from cyanobacteria and their potential applications; biotechnology for algal mass cultivation; marine biopolymers from the red algae; a renewable energy from pyrolysis of marine and freshwater algae; anti-coagulants from marine algae; recent advances in commercial producation of astaxanthin from microalgae; anti-HIV compounds from red seaweeds; chemical properties, biological activies and applications of carrageenans from red algae; industrial applications of chitosanases; molecular farming of industrial proteins in plants; photobioreactors; adhesives from marine mussels - possible biotechnological applications.
