The Saccharina japonica genome sequence and gene models have not been determined by the JGI, but were downloaded from the Online Resource for Community Annotation of Eukaryotes (ORCAE) web portal on August 1, 2020. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by ORCAE 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.
