Algae were the first organisms to appear on Earth, some 3.5 billion years ago, and their constant evolution has allowed them to become powerhouses of nature. They are a very diverse group, with an estimated 40,000 to 10 million species, most of which are microalgae.
Microalgae are unicellular, photosynthetic organisms of aquatic environments (freshwater and saltwater), capable of producing all the nutritional elements essential to life. They have a simple, versatile cell structure, in which they use the metabolic process of photosynthesis to transform light and carbon dioxide into oxygen, and nutritionally rich biomolecules of great bioactive capacity.
The ability of microalgae to synthesize a multitude of compounds gives us the possibility to explore, enhance and develop natural products with great applicability in human life. Currently, they are considered to be the organisms with the greatest industrial potential, as they are rich sources of proteins, vitamins, minerals, carotenoids, polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega 3), and present themselves in the short term as key pieces in the food, nutraceutical, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, aquaculture, agricultural, and energy industries, and with a strong contribution in the fixation and reduction of atmospheric carbon dioxide.
