Importance of organism and transcriptomesBigelowiella natans is a chlorarachniophyte alga. Chlorarachniophytes are unusual among secondary plastid-containing algae in that they still possess the nucleus (nucleomorph) and cytoplasm of their algal endosymbionts in a highly reduced and simplified form. Investigating the nuclear genome of these organisms will improve our understanding of secondary endosymbiosis and the integration of their respective hosts and endosymbionts at the genetic, biochemical, and cellular levels. A better understanding of the relationships between chlorarachniophytes and other red and green algal secondary plastid-bearing organisms will also be possible.
