Tnese researchers "etlso ranked strainsTaccorditig to rapidly growing cells, based on the calculated growth rates and estimated lipid contents of exponential phase cells. The top strains resulting from this analysis are shown in Table II.A.4. However, the optimal strategy for maximizing lipid yield in actual mass culture facilities may require an "induction" step (i.e., manipulation of the culture environment, possibly involving nutrient deficiency). The ranking of strains would obviously be very different in that case.
