FWAlgaeDB, an integrated genome database of freshwater algae

Algal genomics research contributes to a deeper understanding of algal evolution and provides useful genomics inferences correlated with various functions. Published algal genome sequences are very limited owing to genome assembly challenges. Because genome data of freshwater algae are rapidly increasing with the recent boom in next-generation sequencing and bioinformatics, an interface to store, interlink, and display these data is needed.

In this study, we developed the Freshwater Algae Database (FWAlgaeDB) online database which includes information on 204 freshwater algae. And constructed 10 water samples to be sequenced by GenoLab M sequencing platform to do the validation. According to the mapping results, FWAlgaeDB may be a better choice for identifying algal species in freshwater samples.
