The Fistulifera solaris JPCC DA0580 genome sequence and gene models were not determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI), but were downloaded from NCBI on October 31, 2019. In order to ensure this genome is comparable to those sequenced by the JGI, we applied filters to remove if present: 1) transposable elements, 2) pseudogenes, 3) alternative transcripts and overlapping models, 4) alleles on secondary scaffolds and 5) unsupported short models. This resulted in the removal of 9206 models and the generation of the FilteredModels2 (GeneCatalog) gene track. All published models are available in the ExternalModels track. Please note that this copy f the genome is not maintained by NCBI 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 the genes.

Fistulifera solaris JPCC DA0580 is a pennate diatom isolated from a mangrove swamp on the Japanese island of Kyushu. Its high triacylglycerol production has drawn attention for its bioenergy potential.
