Last year, ATCC published the genome of the microalgae Schizochytrium sp. strain S31 (ATCC 20888) to the ATCC Genome Portal. The food and nutrition industry has been extensively studying this genus for its ability to reliably and sustainably produce physiologically beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids, commonly known as fish oils. Despite the promising potential of Schizochytrium sp., broader research can be stymied by either proprietary or incomplete genomic sequences.
