Hi All,
We want to measure ethanol production (and release in the medium) by
Chlamydomonas strains undergoing anaerobic metabolism. What is a
convenient way to do it (that a new graduate student could handle)?
Or if not, what is the non-convenient way to do it?

I see a company (SA Biosciences) sells an assay kit based on ADH, but
do you have to treat the culture medium before using it in the assay?
I am concerned about inhibitors, etc. in the medium.

Thanks for your help.
David Herrin
