Biochemical characterization and genetic identity of an oil-rich Acutodesmus obliquus isolate.

Genomic analyses of several microalgae strains were performed using two internal transcribed spacers (nuclear ITS1 and ITS2 sequences) and three selected chloroplast regions (the trnL genic intron and the rpl20-psbA and psbM-psbZ intergenic spacers). Our findings raise some concerns about the discriminant power of the ITS2 nuclear target and place particular emphasis on the psbM-psbZ plastid DNA barcode, which is characterized by high polymorphism, for use in studies addressing intraspecific genetic diversity.
