Chlamydomonas reinhardtii (Chlamydomonas_reinhardtii_v5.5)

About Chlamydomonas reinhardtii

Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is a unicellular green alga from the phylum Chlorophyta, which diverged from land plants over a billion years ago. C. reinhardtii is a model species for studying a broad range of fundamental biological processes including the evolution of chloroplast-based photosynthesis and the structure of eukaryotic flagella. It is haploid, and has a nuclear genome comprising 17 chromosomes with a total size of ~120 Mb.
