    • Diat.barcode, an open-access curated barcode library for diatoms 

      Rimet, Frédéric; Gusev, Evgenuy; Kahlert, Maria; Kelly, Martyn G.; Kulikovskiy, Maxim; Maltsev, Yevhen; Mann, David G.; Pfannkuchen, Martin; Trobajo, Rosa; Vasselon, Valentin; Zimmermann, Jonas; Bouchez, Agnès
      Diatoms (Bacillariophyta) are ubiquitous microalgae which produce a siliceous exoskeleton and which make a major contribution to the productivity of oceans and freshwaters. They display a huge diversity, which makes them ...
    • The future of biotic indices in the ecogenomic era: Integrating (e)DNA metabarcoding in biological assessment of aquatic ecosystems 

      Pawlowski, Jan; Kelly-Quinn, Mary; Altermatt, Florian; Apothéloz-Perret-Gentil, Laure; Beja, Pedro; Boggero, Angela; Borja, Angel; Bouchez, Agnès; Cordier, Tristan; Domaizon, Isabelle; Feio, Maria Joao; Filipe, Ana Filipa; Fornaroli, Ricardo; Graf, Wolfram; Herder, Jelger; van der Hoorn, Berry; Jones, J. Iwan; Sagova-Mareckova, Marketa; Moritz, Christian; Barquín, Jose; Piggott, Jeremy J.; Pinna, Maurizio; Rimet, Frederic; Rinkevich, Buki; Sousa-Santos, Carla; Specchia, Valeria; Trobajo, Rosa; Vasselon, Valentin; Vitecek, Simon; Zimmerman, Jonas; Weigand, Alexander; Leese, Florian; Kahlert, Maria
      The bioassessment of aquatic ecosystems is currently based on various biotic indices that use the occurrence and/or abundance of selected taxonomic groups to define ecological status. These conventional indices have some ...
    • The potential of High-Throughput Sequencing (HTS) of natural samples as a source of primary taxonomic information for reference libraries of diatom barcodes 

      Rimet, Frédéric; Abarca, Nelida; Bouchez, Agnès; Kusber, Wolf-Henning; Jahn, Regine; Kahlert, Maria; Keck, François; Kelly, Martyn G.; Mann, David G.; Piuz, André; Trobajo, Rosa; Tapolczai, Kalman; Vasselon, Valentin; Zimmermann, Jonas
      Diatoms are used routinely to assess pollution level in rivers and lakes. Current methods are based on identification by light microscopy, which is laborious. An alternative is to identify species based on short DNA fragments ...
