At the AlwaysOn Summit at Stanford University, Steve Jurvetson of Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Bill Green of Vantage Point Venture Partners, and moderator Awais Khan of KPMG discuss current and future uses for algae. Green says that while algae can be used to produce fuel, it is currently not sustainable on a large scale. Jurvetson explains that by disabling certain pathways in the organism, scientists may be able to create a more productive algae.
