Abstract: Many organisms are subjected to a daily cycle of light and darkness, which significantly influences metabolic and physiological processes. In the present study, Neopyropia yezoensis, one of the major cultivated seaweeds used in nori, was harvested in the morning and evening during light/dark treatments to investigate daily changes in gene expression using RNA-sequencing. A high abundance of transcripts in the morning includes the genes associated with carbon-nitrogen assimilations, polyunsaturated fatty acid, and starch synthesis. In contrast, the upregulation of a subset of the genes associated with the pentose phosphate pathway, cell cycle, and DNA replication at evening is necessary for the tight control of light-sensitive processes, such as DNA replication. Additionally, a high abundance of transcripts at dusk encoding asparaginase and glutamate dehydrogenase imply that regulation of asparagine catabolism and tricarboxylic acid cycle possibly contributes to supply nitrogen and carbon, respectively, for growth during the dark. In addition, genes encoding cryptochrome/photolyase family and histone modification proteins were identified as potential key players for regulating diurnal rhythmic genes.
