The Vitrella brassicaformis CCMP3155 genome assembly and gene models were downloaded from CryptoDB release 45 on October 31, 2019. 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 functionally annotate the predicted proteins. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by CryptoDB and is therefore not automatically updated.

Vitrella brassicaformis CCMP3155

Vitrella brassicaformis (Alveolata, Chromerida, Family Vitrellaceae) is an example of free-living, photosynthetic marine algae that are close relatives to the Apicomplexa, a phylum containing many obligate human and animal parasites. Chromerida species have also been described as coral symbionts. Vitrella was co-published with Chromera velia.
