GEL PURIFICATION OF RED ALGAL GENOMIC DNA: AN INEXPENSIVE AND RAPID METHOD FOR THE ISOLATION OF POLYMERASE CHAIN REACTION‐FRIENDLY DNA 1
- G. Saunders
- 1 April 1993
DNA is extracted as easily from dried algae as it is from snap‐frozen, fresh material, thus greatly facilitating the collection and transport of algal samples.
ULTRASTRUCTURE AND 18S RRNA GENE SEQUENCE FOR PELAGOMONAS CALCEOLATA GEN. ET SP. NOV. AND THE DESCRIPTION OF A NEW ALGAL CLASS, THE PELAGOPHYCEAE CLASSIS NOV. 1
Based on morphological, ultrastructural, and molecular data, this alga is described as a new species and placed in a new genus, family, order, and class, and the highly unusual new species occupies an unresolved position among other chromophyte algae.
CRYPTOMONAD EVOLUTION: NUCLEAR 18S rDNA PHYLOGENY VERSUS CELL MORPHOLOGY AND PIGMENTATION 1
Analysis of nuclear18S rDNA sequence supports suggestions that a Falcomonas‐like cryptomonad gave rise to all other blue‐green cryptomonads, and the morphology, number, and pigmentation of the Cryptomonad plastidial complex are congruent with nuclear 18S r DNA phylogenies.
Small-subunit ribosomal RNA sequences from selected dinoflagellates: testing classical evolutionary hypotheses with molecular systematic methods
A number of molecular phylogenies have emerged that challenge the more traditional perspectives of dinoflagellates classification and phylogeny and are presented with comparative reference to the long-standing traditional views.
Small-subunit rRNA gene sequences from representatives of selected families of the Gigartinales and Rhodymeniales (Rhodophyta). 2. Recognition of the Halymeniales ord.nov.
The molecular data used to test the validity of the taxonomic merger of the orders Gigartinales and Cryptonemiales was used to support a monophyletic origin for a comb...
Small-subunit rRNA gene sequences from representatives of selected families of the Gigartinales and Rhodymeniales (Rhodophyta). 1. Evidence for the Plocamiales ord.nov.
Phylogenetic analyses of the SSU sequences between the Plocamiaceae and members of the Sphaerococcaceae, Phacelocarpaceae, and Nizymeniaceae show SSU differences of between 87 and 105 nucleotides and do not indicate a close relationship.
Small-subunit rDNA sequences from representatives of selected families of the Gigartinales and Rhodymeniales (Rhodophyta). 3. Delineating the Gigartinales sensu stricto
Nuclear small-subunit ribosomal DNA sequences were determined for 65 members of the Gigartinales and related orders to support ordinal status for the Plocamiales, to which the Pseudoanemoniaceae and Sarcodiaceae are provisionally transferred.
Biology of Furcellaria lumbricalis (Hudson) Lamouroux (Rhodophyta: Gigartinales), a commercial carrageenophyte
Biological aspects under discussion include: nomenclature, taxonomy, morphology, development and life history, distribution, phenology, ecophysiology, growth and resource management.
Molecular and morphological phylogenies of kelp and associated brown algae
This chapter discusses the current state of knowledge for relationships of the Laminariales relative to other orders of brown algae and among the families of kelp, in particular, the Alariaceae, Laminariaceae and Lessoniaceae.
NUCLEOTIDE SEQUENCES OF THE SMALL‐SUBUNIT RIBOSOMAL RNA GENES FROM SELECTED LAMINARIALES (PHAEOPHYTA): IMPLICATIONS FOR KELP EVOLUTION 1
The entire small‐subunit (SSU) ribosomal ribonucleic acid sequence was inferred for kelp representing seven genera and was used in a SSU molecular clock to suggest that the most distantly related kelp investigated in this study diverged between 16 and 30 million years ago.
