About Ostreococcus lucimarinus

Ostreococcus lucimarinus is a unicellular green alga and an important member of the picoplankton community, which plays a central role in the oceanic carbon cycle. It is one of the smallest known free-living eukaryotic species, with an average size of 0.8 ┬Ám. Its cellular structure is characterised by remarkable simplicity, lacking a cell wall and containing a single chloroplast, a single mitochondrion, and a single Golgi body as well as its nucleus.
