AbstractOnly two mitochondrial (mt) genomes had been reported in members of the red algal order Batrachospermales, which are confined to freshwater habitats. Additional mt genomes of six representative members (Batrachospermum macrosporum, Kumanoa ambigua, K. mahlacensis, Paralemanea sp., Sheathia arcuata, and Sirodotia delicatula) were sequenced aiming to gain insights on the evolution of their mt genomes from a comparative analysis with other red algal groups. Mt genomes sequenced had the foll...

Little is known about genome organization in members of the order Batrachospermales, and the infra-ordinal relationship remains unresolved. Plastid (cp) genomes of seven members of the freshwater red algal order Batrachospermales were sequenced, with the following aims: 1) to describe the characteristics of cp genomes and compare these with other red algal groups; 2) to infer the phylogenetic relationships among these members to better understand the infra-ordinal classification. Cp genomes of B...

ABSTRACTIn recent years, the use of molecular data in algal systematics has increased as high-throughput sequencing (HTS) has become more accessible, generating very large datasets at a reasonable cost. In this perspectives paper, our goal is to describe how HTS technologies can advance algal systematics. Following an introduction to some common HTS technologies, we discuss how metabarcoding can accelerate algal species discovery. We show how various HTS methods can be applied to generate datase...

The brown macroalga Cystoseira tamariscifolia is a foundation species along the northeastern Atlantic and western Mediterranean Sea. It occurs from lower intertidal rock pools to the shallow subtidal. Anthropogenic pollution and rising seawater temperatures can threaten its local distributions. In order to address impacts of historical and current environmental changes, to quantify effective dispersal and population connectivity, and to provide genetic tools for restoration and coastal managemen...

Abstract: The siphonous green alga Codium fragile currently has 10 accepted subspecies, among which is the problematic invasive subsp. fragile. The subspecies are defined on the basis of five polymorphic nucleotides in the plastid rps3–rpl16 spacer region, and this subdivision into subspecies has not been investigated in detail with other DNA markers. Here, we compiled a data set of the green algal DNA barcoding marker tufA that includes 110 C. fragile specimens and an additional 80 specimens of...

Background Obtaining strongly supported phylogenies that permit confident taxonomic and evolutionary interpretations has been a challenge in algal biology. High-throughput sequencing has improved the capacity to generate data and yields more informative datasets. We sequenced and analysed the chloroplast genomes of 22 species of the order Nemaliales as a case study in the use of phylogenomics as an approach to achieve well-supported phylogenies of red algae.

Abstract Several tools can be used to evaluate the health status of fish. Histology is one of them because it assesses pathological changes induced by environment, pathogens and/or nutritional factors. The histological condition of macroscopically healthy turbot juveniles in the beginning of the growing phase in an intensive fish farm was evaluated. The gill, skin, liver, kidney and intestine were histologically processed by standard techniques and their histological status determined semi-quant...
