Algae-based product producer Aurora Algae has developed a new technique for genetic optimization to create advanced-trait algae strains for product development in the pharmaceutical, nutrition, renewable energy and animal feed markets.

This technology, homologous recombination, enables genetic optimization without introducing foreign genes, thereby preserving the organism's natural genetic background. It expedites research cycles, reducing the time and costs associated with studying biosynthetic pathways and subsequently manipulating those pathways.
