Little is known about genome organization in members of the order Batrachospermales, and the infra-ordinal relationship remains unresolved. Plastid (cp) genomes of seven members of the freshwater red algal order Batrachospermales were sequenced, with the following aims: 1) to describe the characteristics of cp genomes and compare these with other red algal groups; 2) to infer the phylogenetic relationships among these members to better understand the infra-ordinal classification. Cp genomes of B...

AbstractOnly two mitochondrial (mt) genomes had been reported in members of the red algal order Batrachospermales, which are confined to freshwater habitats. Additional mt genomes of six representative members (Batrachospermum macrosporum, Kumanoa ambigua, K. mahlacensis, Paralemanea sp., Sheathia arcuata, and Sirodotia delicatula) were sequenced aiming to gain insights on the evolution of their mt genomes from a comparative analysis with other red algal groups. Mt genomes sequenced had the foll...

Summary We report here the 98.5 Mbp haploid genome (12,924 protein coding genes) of Ulva mutabilis , a ubiquitous and iconic representative of the Ulvophyceae or green seaweeds. Ulva 's rapid and abundant growth makes it a key contributor to coastal biogeochemical cycles; its role in marine sulfur cycles is particularly important because it produces high levels of dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP), the main precursor of volatile dimethyl sulfide (DMS). Rapid growth makes Ulva attractive biomass ...

Chloroplast genomes, relics of an endosymbiotic cyanobacterial genome, are circular double-stranded DNA molecules. They typically range between 100-200 kb and code for circa 80-250 genes. While fragmented mitochondrial genomes evolved several times independently during the evolution of eukaryotes, fragmented plastid genomes are only known in dinoflagellates, where genes are present on several minicircles. Here we show that the chloroplast genome of the green alga Boodlea composita (Cladophorales...

Summary Virtually all plastid (chloroplast) genomes are circular double-stranded DNA molecules, typically between 100 and 200 kb in size and encoding circa 80–250 genes. Exceptions to this universal plastid genome architecture are very few and include the dinoflagellates, where genes are located on DNA minicircles. Here we report on the highly deviant chloroplast genome of Cladophorales green algae, which is entirely fragmented into hairpin chromosomes. Short- and long-read high-throughput seque...
