Orlando de Lange has a blog post up on 'Microalgae as a microcosm of plant biotech' mentioning the work of Alison Smith's Lab at the University of Cambridge, plus several others using Chlamydomonas for classical biotechnology and synthetic biology. Worth a quick read!

And of course I won’t leave out synthetic biology. Several labs seem to be exploring the potential for synthetic biology with microalgae.Alison Smith’s lab in Cambridge has long studied mircroalgal metabolism, with an eye to biofuel production and has more recently begun churning out tools for engineering Chlamydomonas.
