Importance of organism and transcriptomesLeptocylindrus danicus var. apora is a centric colonial diatom which forms intense blooms in the Gulf of Naples in summer, and is widely distributed in coastal areas around the world. It is genetically distinct from L. danicus var. danicus and probably deserves the status of a separate species. The transcriptome can provide useful information for metatranscriptomic studies during blooms of the species while its comparison with that of L. danicus can shed light on the molecular basis of life cycle and phenological patterns, which are distinct between the two taxa.
