Turning Algae Into Biofuel

We're running out of oil. Algae may be the answer. Since algae is primarily made up of lipids, and those lipids can be turned into oil, I researched how we can genetically modify algae so that it produces more lipids.

There are 4 Steps

First, lab technicians would collect a sample of a patients T-cells from their blood. Then, in the lab, T cells are inserted with the genes to grow receptors called CARs. Thirdly, the newly created CAR-T cells are left to multiply until there are millions of them. Lastly, the CAR T-cells are inserted into the patients body and attack the cancerous cells.
