SINGEK: New paper about Genome Analyses of the Microalga Picochlorum and evolution of thermotolerance in the green lineage

A collaboration between different SINGEK teams from the Ghent University (VIB) and the Observatoire Oceanologique de Banyuls sur mer (OBS Banyuls-CNRS) has been established. Within this context, François BUCCHINI (SINGEK ESR10) has developed code to assess the gene space completeness in the newly sequenced Picochlorum genome and compared it with genomes of other green algae. From that, […]

ASLO 2018 Summer Meeting

WATER CONNECTS !! ASLO 2018 Summer Meeting, 10th-15th June, Victoria (Canada) Water connects everything and everyone! Water transcends and connects all spheres: the lithosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere – from fresh to salty, from microscopic to macroscopic. Water connects us to each other and to resources – across cultures and society, across politics and international boundaries. […]
