Draft Genome Sequence of the Oleaginous Green Alga Tetradesmus obliquus UTEX 393

Genome Announc. 2017 Jan 19;5(3):e01449-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01449-16.


The microalgae Tetradesmus obliquus is able to maintain a high photosynthetic efficiency under nitrogen limitation and is considered a promising green microalgae for sustainable production of diverse compounds, including biofuels. Here, we report the first draft whole-genome shotgun sequencing of T. obliquus The final assembly comprises 108,715,903 bp with over 1,368 scaffolds.
