Thalassiosira pseudonana (ASM14940v2)

About the Thalassiosira pseudonana genome

Thalassiosira pseudonanais a centric diatom that belongs to the diverse algal group, likely arose from a common secondary endosymbiotic event, involving at least five different genomes. Diatoms are involved in various biogeochemical cycles most notably involving carbon, nitrogen and silicon, and contribute 30% to 40% of marine primary productivity. Consequently, they are responsible for approximately one fifth of the oxygen that is generated each year through global photosynthesis.
