The Synthetic Diatoms Project


Welcome to the Synthetic Diatoms Project


The  Synthetic Diatoms Project website has officially launched as of May 21, 2020 to usher in a new collaborative era of synthetic algae research.

The platform has accumulated of all of the required information to grow, transform, edit, and analyze the diatoms Phaeodactylum tricornutum and Thalassiosira pseudonana.

By working together to identify and solve the bottlenecks toward the development of synthetic, minimal chromosomes in algae, we become one step closer toward optimally using these photosynthetic bio-factories for the production of high-valued compounds.

Please feel free to create a profile to join the community and contribute to our discussion boards in the community hub.
