Importance of organism and transcriptomesProrocentrum micans is the type species of a large and very common genus of planktonic and benthic dinoflagellates. Generally speaking the genus has a very derived morphology, and nothing is known about the genetic mecanisms underlining it. P. micans is capable of forming blooms, and although it has not been shown to be toxic, it is a harmful species because it kills marine life by depleting oxygen in the water.
