Importance of organism and transcriptomesVannellid amoebae are one of the most important groups among Amoebozoa, as they are most widely distributed and most abundant in all habitats, including marine. The species nominated is one of the few cyst-forming vannellids, and one of the rare strains isolated from the deep-sea bottom. The obtained transcriptome data are pioneering for Vannella and will be used in comparison with the data on trophic amoebae to look for potential markers to distinguish trophic cells/cysts in metagenomic studies.
