Algae have been shaped by the forces of evolution to store lipids in periods of low nitrogen/phosphate and high carbon abundance. After such stressful period they can digest them back and live off their stored energy. If you would express "n" gens in a different host this should match it's metabolism and confer a competitive advantage. This will probably reduce growth speed or resilience of the strain. The risk is tohaving it "washed out" of the gut system, unless it forces to stay through biofilm i guess. Anyway doubling by doubling the chance of mutation rate will accumulate leading one day to a loss-of-phenotype mutant.
