Abstract / Description:We present the results of a CO line survey of 30 galaxies at moderate redshift (z ~ 0.2-0.6), with the IRAM 30 m telescope, with the goal to follow galaxy evolution and in particular the star formation efficiency (SFE) as defined by the ratio between far-infrared luminosity and molecular gas mass (LFIR/M(H2)). The sources are selected to be ultra-luminous infra-red galaxies (ULIRGs), with LFIR larger than 2.8 × 1012 L&sun;, experiencing starbursts; adopting a low ULIRG
