Cell growth and astaxanthin yield of ARTP mutants. Growth curve a and carotenoid profile b of strain SyBE_Sc307001 and its ARTP mutagenesis strains (SyBE_Sc2110M1 and SyBE_Sc2110M3) which achieved higher total carotenoids accumulation in YPD medium than the parent strain. A photograph was attached bellow the bar chart to illustrate visual color of the related strains. The error bars represent standard deviations calculated from duplicate experiments. “Astaxanthin yield” was determined as “the astaxanthin content in single cell” with unit as mg/g DCW. Other carotenoids indicated zeaxanthin, canthaxanthin, lycopene and β-carotene
