  • Genetic engineering of the algal chloroplast as a platform for production of therapeutic proteins
  • Development of genetic strategies for improved biofuel production from algae and cyanobacteria
  • Development of synthetic biology tools for metabolic engineering of algae
  • The regulation of organelle gene expression by nuclear-encoded factors.
