Eleonora Van SitterenGuest Student, Lindell LabI work with the Lindell Lab group at WHOI on a selective breeding program with sugar kelps. These can be used as a carbon-neutral, sometimes even carbon-negative, highly nutritious food source, as well as a promising biofuel. To make the farming process more efficient, the lab is tracking the genetics of the algae. But to farm kelp, you need something for it to attach to and grow on. So, my job is to figure out a better binder (glues, basically) that will help algae attach and allow them to grow.
