Table 2 Loss in biomass, gain in lipid content and lipid accumulation in SDEC-3M, and dissolved oxygen in broths in response to different blending modes during 12 h darkness

From: Characterization and optimization of endogenous lipid accumulation in Chlorella vulgaris SDEC-3M ability to rapidly accumulate lipid for reversing nightly lipid loss
