SJAPGEM description

Saccharina japonica is the most cultivated alga worldwide, with nearly 8 millions tons of dry weight harvested in 2014, representing more than US $1.3 billion value (Chen J., FAO website, accessed on january 10th, 2019). Its draft genome sequence was published in 2015 (Ye et al., Nature Communications). The genome version used here underwent an additional round of cleaning for bacterial contaminants using Taxoblast (Dittami and Corre, 2017). The paper describing this GEM reconstruction in more detail was published in 2019 (Nègre et al., Antioxidants). In this study, extensive manual curation was performed on the carotenoid biosynthesis pathway (CAROTENOID-PWY) and on the first cycle of xanthophylls (PWY-5945). In a follow-up study (Girard et al., in preparation) we are now curating the sterol biosynthesis pathways (PWY-8191, PWY-8238).
