Shipping increases for strains and plasmids

Unfortunately we need to increase our flat rate shipping charges. This increase reflects updated charges for FedEx Standard Overnight and FedEx International Priority. The new rate within the United States is $35.00, Canada is $65.00 and $85.00 worldwide. These prices reflect a significant discount that the U of MN receives from FedEx. We do not make … Continued

Version 6 of the Chlamydomonas reference genome is released!

We are pleased to announce the sixth version of the Chlamydomonas reference genome. Based on PacBio long-read sequencing, the first update in 10 years sees major improvements in assembly quality and structural annotations. Expert functional annotations have also been extensively updated, with particular focus on gene symbols. This release sees a departure from the cell … Continued

Ph.D. position on algal-bacterial interactions

The Sasso lab at Leipzig University in Germany offers a Ph.D. position starting from 1 September 2022. Activities and responsibilities: While microalgae are key contributors to global carbon fixation, their molecular interactions with other microbes in various ecosystems are poorly understood. In the framework of the Collaborative Research Centre ChemBioSys (, we have discovered that the … Continued

Postdoctoral position available in the Mittag lab, Friedrich Schiller University Jena

Scientific staff member (100% Postdoctoral position) Albeit microalgae are key contributors to global carbon fixation, their molecular interactions with other microbes in various ecosystems are still little known.
