The Phaeoexplorer project

Exploring the evolution of biological complexity in the brown algae through the establishment of a multi-scale genomic data resource

The Phaeoexplorer project aims to generate transcriptome data and annotated genome assemblies for a broad range of brown algal species at different phylogenetic distances from the model brown alga Ectocarpus in order to address a number of key questions about the biology and evolutionary history of this poorly characterized but important group of marine eukaryotes. The knowledge generated by the project will be exploited to develop new techniques and products for the macroalgal mariculture and processing industries.

News

Protocols for brown algae - Sept. 29, 2022

New publicly-accessible feature: the Phaeoexplorer website now allows you to download detailed protocols for diverse cell biology, molecular biology, genetic and epigenetic procedures (tabs: Additional resources; Protocols).

Ectocarpus transcriptomic data - June 3, 2022

New feature: it is now possible to analyse the expression of Ectocarpus species 7 genes using the Shiny Transcriptomic Aggregator (tabs: Additional resources; Ectocarpus RNAseq aggregator).

Differential gene expression data - June 3, 2022

Message to the consortium: consortium members can now access data from the differential expression analysis experiments (tabs: Additional resources, Differential Expression).
