Nannochloropsis paper released

We are pleased to announce that our latest paper, Chromosome scale genome assembly and transcriptome profiling of Nannochloropsis gaditana in nitrogen depletion, has been published online in Molecular Plant.

The paper presents the accurate assembly of the genome and the RNA-Seq experiments performed in Nitrogen starvation to investigate the active pathways in a lipid-producing condition.

We released with the paper a Nannochloropsis genome portal ( featuring a genomic browser, a gene annotation query system and the MetaCyc for metabolic pathways analysis, as well as a dedicated BLAST tool.

About Andrea Telatin

Visiting bioinformatician in the Bioinformatics team, on-contract professor of "Introduction to Bash for bioinformatics". During his PhD he developed a novel scaffolding suite (ScaMPI), that has been used to assemble the genome of N. gaditana. Current research interests span from epigenomic data analysis, genome assembly and finishing, metagenomics.
