Importance of organism and transcriptomesVexilliferidae have a key significance for understanding the evolutionary relationships between Dactylopodida and other Discosea. The species nominated is one of the few marine amoebae isolated froom the deep sea sedimements. The obtained transcriptome data are pioneering for Vexillifera and will be used for the first broadly-sampled multigene analysis of the amoebozoan phylogeny.
