Botryococcus is a unicellular photosynthetic eukaryotic bacteria that is a member of the class of chlorophyceae. This green algae is of great importance to engineers and scientists involved in renewable energy due to its high production of hydrocarbons.

When botryococcus was first discovered in 1849 it was reported as a member of the Chlorophyceae. Later in 1950 botryococcus was moved to be a member of Xanthophyceae based on the structure of plastids and starch granules. Only 27 years later the algae was returned to to Chlorophyceae due to ultrastructural studies that related botryococcus to other algae in this class.<ref>[4] Shigeki Sawayama, Seiichi Inoue, Shin-ya Yokoyama, Phylogenetic Position of Botryococcus Braunii, Journal of Phycology, Volume 31, Issue 3, 1995, Pages 419-420. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.0022-3646.1995.00419.x/abstract</ref>
