Phaeodactylum tricornutum (strain CCAP 1055/1) is a diatom, a major algal group and among the most common types of phytoplankton. It has been found in several locations around the world, typically in coastal areas with wide fluctuations in salinity. Unlike other diatoms, it can exist in different morphotypes, and changes in cell shape can be stimulated by environmental conditions.

The completed P. tricornutum genome is approximately 27 Mb and is predicted to contain 10,402 protein-genes. It is the second diatom for which a whole genome sequence has been generated, the first being Thalassiosira pseudonana. The availability of both diatom genomes provides the basis for comparative genomics studies of diatoms with other eukaryotes. The clone of P. tricornutum that was sequenced is CCAP 1055/1. It represents a monoclonal culture derived from a fusiform cell in May 2003 from strain CCMP632, which was originally isolated in 1956 off the coast of Blackpool, UK.
