ESILGEM description

Ectocarpus siliculosus is a model filamentous brown alga. It was the first brown alga to be sequenced ([doi:10.1038/nature09016 Cock et al., Nature 2010]), and the genome sequence was used to build the first brown algal genome-scale metabolic network ([doi:10.1111/tpj.12627 Prigent et al., The Plant Journal, 2014]), using a preliminary version of the AuReMe pipeline. A second version of the genome-scale metabolic network, based on an improved version of the genome assembly and annotation (Cormier et al., New Phytol 2017 was published in 2018 (Aite et al., Plos Comp. Biol). Now, in a more focussed follow-up study (Girard et al., in preparation), we are curating specifically the sterol biosynthesis pathways (PWY-8191, PWY-8238).
