Method Cultures were grown on synthetic medium (see p. 1369) under continuous light (50 µE/m^2/sec) in 1-L Erlenmeyer flasks containing 500 ml medium bubbled with 0.5% C02-enriched air at either 30 or 12°C. Cell population density was measured using a Coulter Counter model ZB.
Comments Under the conditions of illumination, C02-enrichment and NaCl concentration specified above, Dunaliella grew with a generation time of approximately 20 h at 30°C and 80 h at 12°C. For generation time of 8.0-8.5 hours see Melis et al., 1999 DOI: 10.1023/A:1008076231267 p.518 table 1
