Research finds increased sulfur metabolism is a likely survival mechanism for native UAE algae

Research finds increased sulfur metabolism is a likely survival mechanism for native UAE algae
Fast facts:
⦁ NYU Abu Dhabi researchers have sequenced 22 microalgal genomes from the UAE’s mangroves, open seas, salt flats, deserts, and urban areas
⦁ This new collection increases the available microalgal genomes by 50 percent
⦁ Coastal, subtropical species of microalgae show expansion of sulfur-metabolic genes, which help algae cope with salinity and drought
