Project description

Ulva, an ubiquitous representative of green seaweeds, is emerging as a good model system to study the morphogenesis in macroalgae. This project aims characterize the genome of Ulva, including annotation and comparison of two different Ulva ecotype(wild type and slender). Meanwhile, the two strains will be crossed and a genetic map will be made to facilitate marker discovery.
