hey thanks @lanre ... you have anything else on phytoplankton and/or biofuels, and purification and identification of the different classes of lipids?
Sorry, I dont have now but when I get i will let you know.
Thanks.. That's really sweet of you. That'd be of great help actually.. I'll have to study the oil content of phytoplankton in the upcoming months.. so if you come across anything, please lemme know. :)
