Method "Eight species of microalgae were grown in batch culture and harvested for protein in exponential and stationary growth phases."
Comments "In exponential growth phase when the cells were at their maximum growth rate under nutrient-replete conditions, diatom Rubisco concentrations ranged from 1.4±0.2% in Skeletonema cf. costatum to 3.7±0.7% in Chaetoceros mulleri (Fig. 1, Table 1).""Rubisco concentration [is] defined here as the fraction of Rubisco to total protein by mass."
