Abstract

We use a variety of species in this fast-paced environment, and algae is one of them. Algae is valuable to humans in a variety of ways. They are useful bioactive compounds that develop autotrophically. Algae are used extensively in biotechnological and medicinal applications. The study of algae components and their actions has a lot of potential in biotechnology and pharmaceutics. Algae has an important part in biology. Algae's utility has gradually expanded in recent years. It plays a significant role in the industrial and pharmaceutical sectors as a new food product, medicine, and so on. Microalgae are commonly utilised in the manufacturing of medicinal and industrial products. Microalgae's pharmaceutical and industrial goods are worth billions of dollars. As well as being used in healthcare items. Usually, it's amyotrophic algae. And it can be found all over the planet.
