A reappraisal of the genus Leptocylindrus (Bacillariophyta), with the addition of three species and the erection of Tenuicylindrus gen. nov
Centric diatoms of the genus Leptocylindrus are common in the marine plankton worldwide. Only two species, L. danicus Cleve and L. minimus Gran, so far clearly belong to this genus, whose diversityExpand

Diatom flagellar genes and their expression during sexual reproduction in Leptocylindrus danicus
BackgroundFlagella have been lost in the vegetative phase of the diatom life cycle, but they are still present in male gametes of centric species, thereby representing a hallmark of sexualExpand

Aptamers are an innovative and promising tool for phytoplankton taxonomy and biodiversity research
Nucleic acid aptamers are small-size ligands that selectively bind to molecular segments even when they protrude from cell surfaces. Due to their high specificity, aptamers are widely used inExpand

Genome-enabled phylogenetic and functional reconstruction of an araphid pennate diatom Plagiostriata sp. CCMP470, previously assigned as a radial centric diatom, and its bacterial commensal
Diatoms are an ecologically fundamental and highly diverse group of algae, dominating marine primary production in both open-water and coastal communities. The diatoms include both centric species,Expand

Morphology and phylogeny of four species from the genus Bacteriastrum (Bacillariophyta)
Abstract: Four colonial species of the multipolar centric diatom genus Bacteriastrum – B. furcatum, B. hyalinum, B. jadranum and B. mediterraneum – were investigated using field samples from theExpand
