The New Higher Level Classification of Eukaryotes with Emphasis on the Taxonomy of Protists
This revision of the classification of unicellular eukaryotes updates that of Levine et al. (1980) for the protozoa and expands it to include other protists, and proposes a scheme that is based on nameless ranked systematics.
The Revised Classification of Eukaryotes
This revision of the classification of eukaryotes retains an emphasis on the protists and incorporates changes since 2005 that have resolved nodes and branches in phylogenetic trees.
A MULTI‐GENE MOLECULAR INVESTIGATION OF THE KELP (LAMINARIALES, PHAEOPHYCEAE) SUPPORTS SUBSTANTIAL TAXONOMIC RE‐ORGANIZATION 1
The first comprehensive and well‐supported molecular phylogeny for the ALL complex of the Laminariales is presented, maintaining the three recognized families, but with vastly different compositions, as well as proposing the Costariaceae fam.
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.
A molecular assessment of northeast Pacific Alaria species (Laminariales, Phaeophyceae) with reference to the utility of DNA barcoding.
Cyanophora paradoxa Genome Elucidates Origin of Photosynthesis in Algae and Plants
Draft genome and transcriptome data from the basally diverging alga Cyanophora paradoxa are analyzed and provide evidence for a single origin of the primary plastid in the eukaryote supergroup Plantae.
Diversity, nomenclature, and taxonomy of protists.
Evaluating placental inter-ordinal phylogenies with novel sequences including RAG1, γ -fibrinogen, ND6, and mt-tRNA, plus MCMC-driven nucleotide, amino acid, and codon models, plus a phylogenetic foundation for comparative mammalian genomics is evaluated.
Algal genomes reveal evolutionary mosaicism and the fate of nucleomorphs
The nuclear genomes of the cryptophyte Guillardia theta and the chlorarachniophyte Bigelowiella natans are sequenced and extensive genetic and biochemical mosaicism is revealed, with both host- and endosymbiont-derived genes servicing the mitochondrion, the host cell cytosol, the plastid and the remnant endosYmbionT cytOSol of both algae.
The eukaryotic tree of life: endosymbiosis takes its TOL.
Nucleomorph genome of Hemiselmis andersenii reveals complete intron loss and compaction as a driver of protein structure and function

The results indicate that genome compaction can eliminate both coding and noncoding DNA and, consequently, drive the evolution of protein structure and function.
