Unleashing the biotechnology potential of euglenoids
The Euglena International Network (EIN) is a global consortium with the collective goal of supporting euglenoid science through collaborative and integrative omics, working across academia and industry.

Euglenoids are protists – single-celled eukaryotic organisms that don’t fit into the animal, plant, or fungi groups. Euglenoids are a diverse group of organisms and are found in a wide range of ecosystems around the world.

The EIN recently published a position paper in Biology Open, outlining the case for a concerted effort to generate high-quality reference genomes for the nearly 1,000 known species of euglenoids. (More)
