The Tetraselmis striata genome sequence and gene models have not been determined by the JGI, but were downloaded from the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) Greenhouse portal on October 31, 2019. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by LANL 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.

Tetraselmis striata

The genome of Tetraselmis striata (Archaeplastida, Phylum Chlorophyta, Class Chlorodendrophyceae), the first sequenced for its taxonomic class, is important for the study of Chlorophyte evolution and is being evaluated as a potential biofuel feedstock. This sample was isolated as a contaminant from an outdoor Nannochloropsis salina CCMP1776 production pond in southwestern Colorado.
