Cyanidioschyzon merolae strain 10D
About Cyanidioschyzon merolae
Cyanidioschyzon merolae is a unicellular red alga from the phylum Rhodophyta and is one of the most primitive red algae. Rhodophyta is an evolutionarily interesting group that falls in Archaeplastida along with green plants but has also given rise to highly diverse groups of protists, including the photosynthetic and non-photosynthetic Chromalveolata. C. merolae can live in acidic hot springs, with pH below 2 and at 45℃. The nuclear genome is compact (16 Mbp), comprising 20 chromosomes with 5,331 predicted genes. Interestingly, only 26 of the predicted genes have introns.
What can I find? Protein-coding and non-coding genes, splice variants, cDNA and protein sequences, non-coding RNAs.
