Nannochloropsis genome and transcriptome

Mol Plant. (2014) 7 (2): 323-335. First published online: August 21, 2013

Chromosome scale genome assembly and transcriptome profiling of Nannochloropsis gaditana in nitrogen depletion.

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 with multiple tools for information retrieval.
