The Neopyropia yezoensis U-51 genome sequence and gene models have not been determined by the JGI, but were downloaded from Nakamura et al. 2013 on September 19, 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 1729 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.

Neopyropia yezoensis strain:U-51 (susabi-nori)

N. yezoensis, a marine red alga ('nori)' is an important edible laver in the food industry: for example, it is essential for making sushi rolls. However, the biological properties, such as morphological/reproductive changes in the life cycle are poorly understood at the molecular level. This study aims to publish a genome resource to understand such life cycle changes for a red alga. A WGS library of N. yezoensis protoplasts was used for genome sequencing.
