Several strategies for increasing biofuel productivity from microalgae are now being examined, from optimizing light utilization or altering carbon flow pathways for increased biomass accumulation, to modifying lipid production. Depending on the properties of fuel desired, microalgae have potential for producing lipids for conversion into biodiesel, for hydrogen production, and even as a source of ethanol [ 1 ]; and several advances have been made to improve yields in each of these approaches. Algae can also produce complex hydrocarbons, for example terpenoids, which are useful both as biofuel additives and as valuable coproducts that could bolster the economic feasibility of the emerging algal biofuels industry ( Figure 1 ). First, advances in genomic analysis
