TWO NEW BIBLIOGRAPHIES NOW AVAILABLE FROM THE NATIONAL AGRICULTURAL LIBRARY!
TRANSGENIC FISH RESEARCH
BIOTECHNOLOGY OF ALGAE
The following research bibliography is now available at no cost from the
Biotechnology Information Center (BIC) of the National Agricultural Library.
BIOTECHNOLOGY OF ALGAE: A BIBLIOGRAPHY (SRB-123)
The use of algae in biotechnology research is the subject of a new
bibliography produced jointly by the National Agricultural Library's
Biotechnology Information Center (BIC) and Aquaculture Information Center
(AIC). The bibliography contains citations of literature in the NAL
collection covering all aspects of the subject from the commercial use of
algae to gene sequencing studies of algae. According to the project
managers, it "will be invaluable to researchers, industry representatives,
government officials, environmental groups, the interested public, and
others concerned with algae and biotechnology."
In the preface to the publication, the late Robert Warmbrodt, then BIC
Coordinator, said, "The use of algae in biotechnology research and in the
biotechnology industry is significant. Algae play critical roles as
bioreactors for the production of food, chemicals and fuels." As
examples, the authors cite the importance of algae in developing solar
energy technology, in biodegradation and bioremediation programs and in
the ever-expanding domestic and international aquaculture industry.
The 167 citation included in the bibliography were taken from NAL's
Agricola database and from BIOSIS Previews. In addition to the title,
author, source, and an abstract, each citation also includes key subject
