Precision N stress can be used to optimize growth and lipid content tradeoffs. Optimization requires low-level stress for some, high-level for others. Species selection should be broadened to include concurrent growth and lipid accumulation, as well as response to minimal N stress. N deprivation is a viable method for increasing lipid productivity. There is great promise among the natural species.
