Title: Draft Genome Sequence of the Biofuel-Relevant Microalga Desmodesmus armatus

Abstract

A draft genome of 906 scaffolds of 115.8 Mb was created for Desmodesmus armatus, a diploid, lipid- and storage carbohydrate-accumulating microalga proven relevant for large-scale, outdoor cultivation, and serves as a model alga platform for improving photosynthetic efficiency and carbon assimilation for next-generation bioenergy production.
