The genome sequence and gene models of Nannochloropsis gaditana B-31 have not been determined by the JGI, but were downloaded from NCBI, on November 13, 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.

Nannochloropsis gaditana

Nannochloropsis is a marine unicellular algae that is commonly cultivated in marine fish hatcheries as live feed for rotifers and fish larvae. Due to it's high content of omega-3-long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) such as eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid, it is a promising candidate for large scale production of these fatty acids.
