Chlorellaceae sp. bin 3300059473_4402 is a member of class Trebouxiophyceae (phylum Chlorophyta, kingdom Viridiplantae, superkingdom Archaeplastida). This genome assembly is a high-quality metagenome-extracted bin coming from freshwater microbial communities collected in Wisconsin, United States. Based on preliminary species phylogeny, this species is similar to other Trebouxiophyceae bins assembled from this sample and may be closely related to Chlorellaceae family species in Picochlorum and Nannochloris.

Study name: Freshwater microbial communities from Lake Mendota, Crystal Bog Lake, and Trout Bog Lake in Wisconsin, United States

Description: The McMahon Lab is focused on understanding carbon cycling in freshwater lakes and on understanding the metabolism of the uncultured organisms performing it. These metagenomes would extend two existing metagenomic time series from the same lakes that include 300 metagenomes (CSP 394 and 659). This would yield three of the longest known metagenomic time series at 18 years each (2000-2018). All three lakes are part of the North Temperate Lake Long Term Ecological Research (NTL-LTER) program funded by the National Science Foundation since 1981.
