From: Single cell oil of oleaginous fungi from the tropical mangrove wetlands as a potential feedstock for biodiesel

  1. The data are shown as the mean ± standard deviation (n = 3). a,b,c Mean values within a column with different superscript letters differ significantly were determined as mentioned in Methods (ANOVA, Tukey test). Differences were considered statistically significant for p < 0.05. Separate analysis was done for each column.
