The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) has just released its Scientific Image Library under a Creative Commons Licence.

Among the many available pictures and images a small section is also dedicated to the microalgal collection of the institute. Following this link you can browse and freely download useful high quality images for lectures, reports and blog posts.

Do not forget that various collection of high quality images released under Creative Common licence already exist and some of them contain images and pictures of microalgae. For instance The Wikimedia Commons Scientific Images Collection. Don’t forget that you can easily upload your pictures and images of Nannochloropsis to the wikimedia commons collection too, as I did some time ago: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:NannochloropsisMinusNitrogenNileRed.jpg

 

Access to N.gaditana B-31 data through the NCBI

After manual review by the NCBI experts, the genomic data of Nannochloropsis gaditana B-31 are now indexed in the NCBI databases and are accessible through the NCBI web interface and through the NCBI search tools (e.g. blast).

The genomes of the nucleus and of the organelles and the complete annotation of the genomic sequences are registered as bioproject PRJNA170989 ID: 170989, and can be accessed through the following links:

The sequencing data used to assembly of the genomes were also submitted to the NCBI SRA database and are available for consulting and download. You can find the data of: a fragment library of Nannochloropsis gaditana B-31 whole genomic DNA (i.e. includes DNA from the nucleus and from the organelles) sequenced using 454FLX Titanium XL  sequencing kit, 2 half plates (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sra/SRX390591); a mate pair library of Nannochloropsis gaditana B-31 whole genomic DNA with an insert size of 1.5-3Kb sequenced using the SOLiD 3 Plus sequencing kit, half plate (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sra/SRX390674); a mate pair library of Nannochloropsis gaditana B-31 whole genomic DNA with an insert size of 3-5Kb sequenced using the SOLiD 3 Plus sequencing kit, half plate (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sra/SRX390681). Note that details about the biosamples and about the experiments are linked o the data.
