Marchantia polymorpha (Marchanta_polymorpha_v1)

Marchantia polymorpha is a liverwort from a basal land plant lineage. It is almost cosmopolitan and can be found around human habitats in temperate regions. It is a model plant which has been studied for nearly 200 years. It has a short life cycle, it's easy to propagate, cross and transform and has a small haploid genome. Its life cycle alternates between multicellular haploid gametophyte and diploid sporophyte generations. Compared to other land plants exhibits low genetic redundancy.
