Draft Genome Sequence of Picocystis sp. Strain ML, Cultivated from Mono Lake, California

Microbiol Resour Announc. 2019 Jan 24;8(4):e01353-18. doi: 10.1128/MRA.01353-18. eCollection 2019 Jan.


The microscopic alga Picocystis sp. strain ML is responsible for recurrent algal blooms in Mono Lake, CA. This organism was characterized by only very little molecular data, despite its prominence as a primary producer in saline environments. Here, we report the draft genome sequence for Picocystis sp. strain ML based on long-read sequencing.
