The Editor-in-Chief has retracted this article because it shows substantial overlap in both data and text with another article [1] by the same authors that was submitted and published within a close time frame. As the results presented are for a different species of microalgae from that reported in [1], the Editor-in-Chief no longer has confidence in the conclusions presented. All authors agree with this retraction.
