We will have a brief downtime on Tuesday May 28 between 8:45 and 9:30 am PDT due to network equipment maintenance.

The Sargassum fusiforme genome sequence and gene models were not determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI), but were downloaded from figshare on February 01, 2024. 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 17035 models and the generation of the FilteredModels1 (GeneCatalog) gene track. All published models are available in the ExternalModels track. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by its authors 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.

Sargassum fusiforme is also known as hijiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hijiki

Genome sequencing of Sargassum fusiforme

The project is aim to analyze the whole genome of Sargassum fusiforme, which would be useful for functional genomic analysis and genome-assisted breeding in the future.
