The Marine Microbial Eukaryote Transcriptome Sequencing Project (MMETSP): Illuminating the Functional Diversity of Eukaryotic Life in the Oceans through Transcriptome Sequencing
This Community Page describes a resource of 700 transcriptomes from marine microbial eukaryotes to help understand their role in the world's oceans.
Revisions to the Classification, Nomenclature, and Diversity of Eukaryotes
It is confirmed that eukaryotes form at least two domains, the loss of monophyly in the Excavata, robust support for the Haptista and Cryptista, and suggested primer sets for DNA sequences from environmental samples that are effective for each clade are provided.
CBOL Protist Working Group: Barcoding Eukaryotic Richness beyond the Animal, Plant, and Fungal Kingdoms
A group of protist experts proposes a two-step DNA barcoding approach, comprising a universal eukaryotic pre-barcode followed by group-specific barcodes, to unveil the hidden biodiversity of…
Evolution of Rhizaria: new insights from phylogenomic analysis of uncultivated protists
This study provides new insights into the evolution of Rhizaria based on phylogenomic analyses of ESTs from three groups of previously under-sampled protists, and illustrates the potential of this method to elucidate the early evolution of eukaryotes by providing large amount of data for uncultivable free-living and parasitic protists.
Between a Pod and a Hard Test: The Deep Evolution of Amoebae
The results support the hypothesis that the last common ancestor of Amoebozoa was sexual and flagellated, and it also may have had the ability to disperse propagules from a sporocarp-type fruiting body.
Multigene phylogeny resolves deep branching of Amoebozoa.
18S ribosomal RNA gene sequences of Cochliopodium (Himatismenida) and the phylogeny of Amoebozoa.
Ultrastructure, SSU rRNA gene sequences and phylogenetic relationships of Flamella Schaeffer, 1926 (Amoebozoa), with description of three new species.
Cunea n. g. (Amoebozoa, Dactylopodida) with two cryptic species isolated from different areas of the ocean.
