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...

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...

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...

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...

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 We present a molecular survey of the species in the green algal genus Codium that were collected as part of the Atimo Vatae expedition to southern Madagascar. Based on clustering analysis of partial tufA and rbcL sequences, we recognize 11–12 species-level clusters in this area. Through a combination of morphological identifications and DNA comparisons, these clusters are identified as C. mozambiquense, C. spongiosum, C. lucasii subsp. capense, C. duthieae, C. decorticatum, C. prostratu...
