Intimate and long-lasting relationships of fungi and algae have been known for centuries by scientists, and these ancient symbioses might have provided excellent opportunities for horizontal gene transfer (HGT) of protein encoding genes between the two organismal partners. In this study, we sequenced and assembled 451 Mbp of novel genomic DNA from Trebouxia(More)
Sterols are essential for several physiological processes in most eukaryotes. Sterols regulate membrane homeostasis and participate in different signalling pathways not only as precursors of steroid hormones and vitamins, but also through its role in the formation of lipid rafts. Two major types of sterols, cholesterol and ergosterol, have been described so(More)
