Info • Desmodesmus armatus UTEX B 2533 v2.0


[June 2021] The genome and transcriptome sequences of Desmodesmus armatus UTEX B 2533 were not determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI). The genome was sequenced with PacBio and Illumina by Genewiz, and then assembled with Canu by Krissy Mahan at Sandia National Laboratories. The transcriptome was sequenced with Illumina by Genewiz, and then assembled with Trinity by JGI. Subsequently, the JGI Annotation Pipeline was used to generate structural and functional annotations. The plastid and mitochondrial genomes were assembled separately by Dr. Mahan and are available on the Download page.
