Info • Chlorella sorokiniana UTEX 1602


The Chlorella sorokiniana UTEX 1602 genome sequence and gene models have not been determined by the JGI, but were downloaded from NCBI on October 13, 2019. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by NCBI and is therefore not automatically updated. In order to allow comparative analyses with other algal genomes sequenced by the JGI, a copy of this genome is incorporated into PhycoCosm. The JGI Annotation Pipeline was used to add functional annotation to this genome. The mitochondrial genome is also available in the downloads section.
