TitleDraft Genome Database Construction from Four Strains (NIES-298, FCY- 26, -27, and -28) of the Cyanobacterium Microcystis aeruginosa
PublicationInfo J. Microbiol. Biotechnol.2012 ; 22(9): 1208~1213
AbstractMicrocystis aeruginosa is a cyanobacterium that can form harmful algal blooms (HABs) producing toxic secondary metabolites. We provide here draft genome information of four strains of this freshwater cyanobacterium that was obtained by the Next Generation Sequencing approach to provide a better understanding of molecular mechanisms at the physiological and ecological levels. After gene assembly, genes of each strain were identified and annotated, and a genome database and G-browser of M. aeruginosa were subsequently constructed. Such genome information resources will enable us to obtain useful information for molecular ecological studies with a better understanding of modulating mechanisms of environmental factors associated with blooming.
