Diatoms have a peculiar life cycle where cells move from vegetative reproduction to sexual reproduction as a result of cell size reduction during miotosis. A transcript profiling experiment will identify genes that are required on the different stages of the life cycle. To deciphere their precise role genes will also be studied using transformation experiments.
