The paper describes the genome sequence, gene annotation, and transcriptional profiling of the microalga Nannochloropsis gaditana B-31. The study identifies possible targets of genetic modification that could improve the yield of the strain for biodiesel production. The publication also reports the set up of a genome resource available online at www.nannochloropsis.org with multiple tools for information retrieval.
