Info • Ectocarpus siliculosus Ec 32


The genome sequence and gene models of Ectocarpus siliculosus have not been determined by the JGI, but were downloaded from NCBI, on October 26, 2017. In order to allow comparative analyses with other genomes sequenced by the Joint Genome Institute, a copy of this genome is incorporated into the JGI Genome Portal. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by NCBI and is therefore not automatically updated.
