New publication in Journal of Phycology!

May 10, 2017

Our new publication was published online in Journal of Phycology Early View.  In this study we have developed a molecular indicator to determine the iron status of Pseudo-nitzschia within natural diatom assemblages using gene expression.  As part of this study, we have created an online tool to calculate the Pseudo-nitzschia Iron Limitation Index (ILI) from metatranscriptomic sequence data sets.

Development of a molecular-based index for assessing iron status in bloom-forming pennate diatoms

The Pseudo-nitzschia ILI Calculator is available here.
