Importance of organism and transcriptomesGiven that marine Chlamydomonas species are poorly understood and that relatively few strains are available from culture collections, C. euryale is an excellent candidate for transcriptome sequencing. A C. euryale transcriptome will broaden our understanding of marine Chlamydomonas taxa, and it will allow for comparative genetic analyses with C. reinhardtii; in particular, C. euryale and C. reinhardtii will make an excellent duo for studying adaptations to marine vs. fresh water habitats.
