The Marine Microbial Eukaryote Transcriptome Sequencing Project (MMETSP): Illuminating the Functional Diversity of Eukaryotic Life in the Oceans through Transcriptome Sequencing
TLDR
This Community Page describes a resource of 700 transcriptomes from marine microbial eukaryotes to help understand their role in the world's oceans.
The Protist Ribosomal Reference database (PR2): a catalog of unicellular eukaryote Small Sub-Unit rRNA sequences with curated taxonomy
TLDR
The presence of both rRNA and rDNA sequences, taking into account introns (crucial for eukaryotic sequences), a normalized eight terms ranked-taxonomy and updates of new GenBank releases were made possible by a long-term collaboration between experts in taxonomy and computer scientists.
Patterns of Rare and Abundant Marine Microbial Eukaryotes
Phylogenetic reconstructions of the Haptophyta inferred from 18S ribosomal DNA sequences and available morphological data
TLDR
Based on 18S ribosomal DNA sequence data and available information on morphological structure and ultrastructure, it is proposed that the class Prymnesiophyceae be divided into four orders: Phaeocystales ord. nov., PrymNESiales, Isochrysidales, and Coccolithales.
Marine protist diversity in European coastal waters and sediments as revealed by high-throughput sequencing.
TLDR
This extensive and systematic sequencing of geographically separated sites provides the most comprehensive molecular description of coastal marine protist diversity to date.
Revisions to the Classification, Nomenclature, and Diversity of Eukaryotes
TLDR
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.
Ribosomal DNA phylogenies and a morphological revision provide the basis for a revised taxonomy of the Prymnesiales (Haptophyta)
TLDR
The rDNA phylogenies indicate that the genus Chrysochromulina is paraphyletic and is divided into two major clades, and suggest a revision of the taxonomy of the Prymnesiales that is in accordance with available molecular evidence and supported by morphological data.
GENETIC VARIABILITY AND MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF DINOPHYSIS SPECIES (DINOPHYCEAE) FROM NORWEGIAN WATERS INFERRED FROM SINGLE CELL ANALYSES OF rDNA 1
TLDR
RDNA sequences of the most common Dinophysis species in Scandinavian waters are determined and phylogenetic relationships within the genus and to other dinoflagellates are resolved, indicating an early divergence of Dinoph kidney within the Dinophyta.
Oligopeptide chemotypes of the toxic freshwater cyanobacterium Planktothrix can form sub‐populations with dissimilar ecological traits
TLDR
It is suggested that first, oligopeptide chemotypes can have dissimilar ecological traits and therefore interact differently with their environment; second, populations of toxic freshwater cyanobacteria can comprise multiple ecologically distinct subpopulations; and, third, the relative abundance of these may vary, causing a high variability in whole‐population properties.
