The genome sequence and gene models of Micractinium conductrix SAG 241.80 have not been determined by the JGI, but were downloaded from NCBI on October 13, 2019. 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 1,331 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 the genes.

The following text is modified from NCBI Bioproject https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/bioproject/PRJNA290385:

Micractinium conductrix SAG 241.80 is a single-cell green alga. It produces a large amount of sugar at a lower pH environment, but the function is turned off with the increase of pH level. This organism represents a category of industrially important species, and a detailed study of genetic pathways involved in the sugar-producing process will help to improve people's daily life.
