The genome sequence and gene models of Symbiodinium microadriaticum were not determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI), but were downloaded from NCBI on May 25, 2018. In order to allow comparative analyses with other genomes sequenced by the JGI, a copy of this genome is incorporated into the JGI Genome Portal. JGI tools were used to automatically annotate predicted proteins. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by NCBI and is therefore not automatically updated.

Symbiodinium microadriaticum strain:CCMP2467 Genome sequencing and assembly

Dinoflagellates are ubiquitous marine and freshwater protists. As free-living photosynthetic plankton, they account for ~50% of the primary productivity of oceans and lakes. As photosynthetic symbionts, they provide essential nutrients to corals that are the architects of one of the most productive ecosystems: coral reefs. Here, we report the sequencing of the genome of the dinoflagellate Symbiodinium sp. (CCMP 2467), isolated in the Red Sea from the scleractinian coral Stylophora pistillata. Using a variety of paired-end and mate-paired Illumina genomic sequencing libraries we have sequenced and then assembled a draft genome of the dinoflagellate.
