Sizing of Heterokont Genomes

About Our Research

This project is in collaboration with Fritz Kapraun (UNC Wilmington) and is focused on sizing the genomes across the heterokonts emphasizing lineages within the brown algae. Data from this work is organized into a series of tables (see links). These tables give you a more indepth information on what this research project is about.
