Abstract In development since 1996, AlgaeBase (http://www.algaebase.org) is an on-line database providing free access to authoritative taxonomic, distributional and nomenclatural information of more than 135,000 names of species and infraspecific taxa of algae set in the context of a taxonomic hierarchy. The project was initially funded by the Higher Education Authority, Department of Education and Science (Ireland) and the European Union (the SeaweedAfrica Project), and more recently by an… 
realDB: a genome and transcriptome resource for the red algae (phylum Rhodophyta)
Abstract With over 6000 species in seven classes, red algae (Rhodophyta) have diverse economic, ecological, experimental and evolutionary values. However, red algae are usually absent or rare in
Alga-PrAS (Algal Protein Annotation Suite): A Database of Comprehensive Annotation in Algal Proteomes
TLDR
This study estimated multiple physicochemical and secondary structural properties of protein sequences, the predicted presence of post-translational modification (PTM) sites, and subcellular localization using a total of 510,123 protein sequences from the proteomes of 31 algal and three plant species.
Phycoremediation as a Strategy for the Recovery of Marsh and Wetland with Potential in Colombia
TLDR
Microalgae, unicellular, and mixotrophic microorganisms are highly adaptable to the environment, and their maintenance costs are minimal, because they feed on almost any substrate, as an alternative for the treatment and the recovery of its bodies of water.
PhytoREF: a reference database of the plastidial 16S rRNA gene of photosynthetic eukaryotes with curated taxonomy
TLDR
The PhytoREF database is built that contains 6490 plastidial 16S rDNA reference sequences that originate from a large diversity of eukaryotes representing all known major photosynthetic lineages and mainly focuses on marine microalgae, but sequences from land plants and freshwater taxa were also included to broaden the applicability of Phy toREF to different aquatic and terrestrial habitats.
The distribution and environmental requirements of large brown seaweeds in the
TLDR
It is concluded that large brown algal species need to be managed and conserved in a manner that reflects their scale and importance and not at climatic tolerance limits.
Impacts of ocean acidification on calcifying macroalgae: Padina sp. as a test case – a review
TLDR
The present review summarizes the current information about the brown alga Padina sp.
The Genomes of Charophyte Green Algae
The distribution and environmental requirements of large brown seaweeds in the British Isles
TLDR
It is concluded that large brown algal species need to be managed and conserved in a manner that reflects their scale and importance and not at climatic tolerance limits.
Metabolomic Insights into Marine Phytoplankton Diversity
TLDR
A high-throughput untargeted metabolomic approach is explored to explore the phenotypic–genotypic gap in 12 marine microalgae encompassing 1.2 billion years of evolution and support the hypothesis of a metabolomic clock, suggesting that DNA and metabolomic profiles co-evolve.

TLDR
An attempt is made to arrive at a more accurate estimate using species numbers in phyla and classes included in the on‐line taxonomic database AlgaeBase (http://www.algaebase.org).
The Index Nominum Algarum
TLDR
The Index Nominum Algarum (ING) is an ongoing project with the goal of producing and maintaining an index of scientific names of algae, both living and fossil, at all ranks, which now comprises about 180,000 entries.

Typification of Linnaean names relevant to algal nomenclature
TLDR
Lectotypes, neotypes and epitypes are designated here by 15 specialists for Linnaean algal names that support the current usage of the names concerned and earlier but ineffective or supersedable type selections are discussed.
