Table 5 Biomass yields

From: Flux balance analysis of primary metabolism in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii

Growth Condition Yield (g biomass/mole carbon)
Autotrophic 28.9
Heterotrophic 15.6
Mixotrophic Increases with increasing light flux from 13.5 to a maximum of 22.9
  1. Biomass yields under different growth conditions. The organic carbon source for heterotrophic and mixotrophic growth was exogenously supplied acetate.
