Reductive genome evolution is seen in organisms living in clo se association with each other, such as in endosymbiosis, symbiosis, and parasitism. The reduced genomes of endosymbionts and parasites often exhibit similar features such as high gene densities and A+ T compositional bias. Little is known about how the regulation of gene expression has been affected in organisms with highly compacted genomes. We studied gene transcription patterns in “nucleomorph” genomes, which are relic nuclear gen...

Cryptophytes are a diverse lineage of marine and freshwater, photosynthetic and secondarily nonphotosynthetic algae that acquired their plastids (chloroplasts) by “secondary” (i.e., eukaryote–eukaryote) endosymbiosis. Consequently, they are among the most genetically complex cells known and have four genomes: a mitochondrial, plastid, “master” nuclear, and residual nuclear genome of secondary endosymbiotic origin, the so-called “nucleomorph” genome. Sequenced nucleomorph genomes are � 1,000-kilo...

. Chlorarachniophytes are enigmatic marine unicellular algae that acquired photosynthesis by secondary endosymbiosis. Chlorarachniophytes are unusual in that the nucleus of the engulfed algal cell (a green alga) persists in a miniaturized form, termed a nucleomorph. The nucleomorph genome of the model chlorarachniophyte, Bigelowiella natans CCMP621, is 373 kilobase pairs (kbp) in size, the smallest nuclear genome characterized to date. The B. natans nucleomorph genome is composed of three chromo...
