    The EMBF is the first curated and integrated web-based relational database on the entire repertoire of enzymes responsible for lipid synthesis in microalgae. Particularly, genomes of fifteen sequenced microalgal species belonging to diverse classes including Chlorophyta (Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, Volvox carteri, Chlorella variabilis, Ostreococcus lucimarinus, Ostreococcus tauri, Micromonas pusilla, Micromonas sp., Bathycoccus prasinos), Heterokontophyta (Thalassiosira pseudonana, Phaeodactylum tricornutum, Aureococcus anophagefferens, Ectocarpus siliculosus, Nannochloropsis gaditana), Rhodophyta (Cyanidioschyzon merolae) and Haptophyta (Emiliania huxleyi), alongwith the model plant species, Arabidopsis has been included. This database not only provides detailed annotation information but also provides a variety of user-friendly tools to efficiently explore, comparatively analyze and download data on a single platform, related to algal biofuel research.
