Technical University of Denmark – Microalgae

Certain microalgae constitute a potential light source, which is something currently being investigated at the Technical University of Denmark. Microalgae emit a turquoise light through biochemical reactions, but there are some evident challenges: the algae have to be moving and only emit light in short bursts. Genes from these microorganisms would also have to be transferred to other, more effective green organisms.
