Speech
Microalgae and synthetic biology

Abstract
Microalgae are ideal light-powered biofactories, as they only require sunlight, seawater and inorganic nutrients to grow. However, only natural isolates are currently industrially exploited, limitedly to products that they naturally synthetize.
Synthetic biology has the intertwined potential to unlock unexplored unique traits, and to re-program microalgae into efficient biofactories for numerous applications through new, DNA-encoded functions. I will describe how we explored the suitability of diatoms – a particularly relevant group of microalgae – for synthetic biology applications and what challenges we will tackle to generate designer industrial strains, fuelled by light and CO2.
