Additional informationChapter 4


Microalgae are renewable and sustainable green biofactories that generate a huge repertoire of bioprospective products and bioenergy materials. In past decades huge advancements have been made to study the microalgal genome, transcriptome, and proteome, which have led to the generation of enormous data sets of the genome-wide transcriptome, proteome, and their interactions like protein–protein interactions in different microalgae. Such tremendous advancements are due to the development of various types of transformation, genetic manipulation strategies, and technological improvements in other fields like data analysis and machine learning, which have been applied to different microalgae. Owing to such technological advancements complemented by colossal price reduction in genome sequencing technologies, many algal genomes are sequenced now or are being sequenced. This chapter discusses the importance and recent advancements which have been made in studying the genomics of microalgae and highlights the shortcomings and benefits of different functional genomic approaches.
