What are NAABB strains?

The National Alliance for Advanced Biofuels and Bio-products (NAABB), a consortium of universities, research institutions, and companies funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, has made 30 of their best performing strains available to the public through UTEX. These strains are well characterized for lipid production and growth kinetics.

2023 UPDATE:
These strains are now available without a Material Transfer Agreement (MTA).
