Importance of organism and transcriptomesSkeletonema marinoi is a successful centric planktonic marine diatom responsible for spring blooms in North Adriatic sea and in many coastal areas around the world. It has been shown that diatoms produce a class of compounds, the oxylipins, that have been found to negatively impact copepod reproduction with possible negative consequence on the flow of energy through the marin food chain. Definition of the transcriptome of two clones of Skeletonema marinoi showing different levels in oxylipin production, will help to understand the physiological mechanisms underlying the activation and the modulation of oxylipins methabolism in diatoms.
