Diat.barcode, an open-access curated barcode library for diatoms
(Scientific Reports, 2019-10-22)
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, ...
The potential of High-Throughput Sequencing (HTS) of natural samples as a source of primary taxonomic information for reference libraries of diatom barcodes
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 ...
Metadata standards and practical guidelines for specimen and DNA curation when building barcode reference libraries for aquatic life
(Metabarcoding and Metagenomics (MBMG), 2021-02-26)
DNA barcoding and metabarcoding is increasingly used to effectively and precisely assess and monitor biodiversity in aquatic ecosystems. As these methods rely on data availability and quality of barcode ...
Ripe for reassessment: a synthesis of available molecular data for the speciose diatom family Bacillariaceae
(Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution, 2020-10-13)
The Bacillariaceae is a very species-rich family of raphid diatoms and includes the large and taxonomically difficult genus Nitzschia, whose species are often small-celled and finely structured and have ...
A polyphasic approach to the study of the genus Nitzschia (Bacillariophyta): three new planktonic species from the Adriatic Sea
(Journal of Phycology, 2020-10-21)
The paraphyletic diatom genus Nitzschia comprises over 1000 morphologically distinct pennate taxa, known from the benthos and plankton of freshwater, brackish and marine environments. The principal ...
