The most important steps for the successful transformation are insertion of foreign DNA molecules into the host cell and maintaining its viability for long term. The first successful genetic transformation was achieved in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii by agitating its cell suspension in the presence of DNA, polyethylene glycol (PEG), and glass beads (Kindle 1990). A few years later, this method was successfully applied for gene transformation in some other microalgae such as Amphidium and Sybiodium (Wijffels et al.
