The aims of this project are (1) to characterize the cell- and life cycle of Phaeodactylum tricornutum, and (2) to characterise the cell size dependent molecular mechanisms that are involved in the induction of sexual reproduction in diatoms. The transcription patterns above and below the critical size treshold for sexual reproduction will be analysed using cDNA-AFLP.
