The Fragilaria crotonensis SAG 28.96 genome sequence and gene models were not determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI), but were downloaded from NCBI on February 14, 2023. In order to ensure this genome is comparable to those sequenced by the JGI, we applied filters to remove if present: 1) transposable elements, 2) pseudogenes, 3) alternative transcripts and overlapping models, 4) alleles on secondary scaffolds and 5) unsupported short models. This resulted in the removal of 6,809 models and the generation of the FilteredModels1 (GeneCatalog) gene track. All published models are available in the ExternalModels track. 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.

Fragilaria crotonensis strain:SAG 28.96

Fragilaria crotonensis is a broadly distributed freshwater diatom that has been demonstrated to serve as a bioindicator of lake eutrophication. This diatom has specific relevance to Lake Erie.
