Fragilariopsis cylindrus CCMP1102 (GCA_001750085.1) (Fracy1)

Fragilariopsis cylindrus CCMP1102 (GCA_001750085.1) Assembly and Gene Annotation

Fragilariopsis cylindrus is a cold-water diatom found in Arctic and Antarctic sea water and sea ice. It can form large ice-edge blooms and is regularly detected in sea ice investigations. To date, prokaryotes are the only psychrophilic (cold-loving) organisms for which whole genome sequences exist. The whole genome sequencing of F. cylindrus will provide the first insights into a psychrophilic eukaryotic organism with compelling ecological and biotechnological applications.

The gene annotaton was done at the Joint Genome Institute (JGI).
