Photosynthesis which stores solar energy in the form of reduced carbon compounds is a global energy provider. Harnessing photosynthesis for green energy production contributes to global energy reform, and to CO2 sequestration. Photosynthesis is, however, inefficient at converting solar energy into biomass, its maximum efficiency being less than 10%. We are aiming at increasing the photosynthesis efficiency of a green unicellular alga by means of molecular breeding.
