From Stop to Start: Tandem Gene Arrangement, Copy Number and Trans-Splicing Sites in the Dinoflagellate Amphidinium carterae
Dinoflagellate genomes present unique challenges including large size, modified DNA bases, lack of nucleosomes, and condensed chromosomes. EST sequencing has shown that many genes are found as manyExpand

Broad Phylogenomic Sampling and the Sister Lineage of Land Plants
The tremendous diversity of land plants all descended from a single charophyte green alga that colonized the land somewhere between 430 and 470 million years ago. Six orders of charophyte greenExpand

Dinoflagellate expressed sequence tag data indicate massive transfer of chloroplast genes to the nuclear genome.
The peridinin-pigmented plastids of dinoflagellates are very poorly understood, in part because of the paucity of molecular data available from these endosymbiotic organelles. To identify additionalExpand

Major transitions in dinoflagellate evolution unveiled by phylotranscriptomics
Significance We created a dataset of dinoflagellate transcriptomes to resolve internal phylogenetic relationships of the group. We show that the dinoflagellate theca originated once, through aExpand

Tintinnophagus acutus n. g., n. sp. (Phylum Dinoflagellata), an Ectoparasite of the Ciliate Tintinnopsis cylindrica Daday 1887, and Its Relationship to Duboscquodinium collini Grassé 1952
ABSTRACT. The dinoflagellate Tintinnophagus acutus n. g., n. sp., an ectoparasite of the ciliate Tintinnopsis cylindrica Daday, superficially resembles Duboscquodinium collini Grassé, a parasite ofExpand

Chlorophyll c-containing plastid relationships based on analyses of a multigene data set with all four chromalveolate lineages.
The chlorophyll c-containing algae comprise four major lineages: dinoflagellates, haptophytes, heterokonts, and cryptophytes. These four lineages have sometimes been grouped together based on theirExpand

The complete plastid genome sequence of the haptophyte Emiliania huxleyi: a comparison to other plastid genomes.
The complete nucleotide sequence of the plastid genome of the haptophyte Emiliania huxleyi has been determined. E. huxleyi is the most abundant coccolithophorid and has a key role in the carbonExpand

Sorting wheat from chaff in multi-gene analyses of chlorophyll c-containing plastids.
Photosynthetic eukaryotes contain primary, secondary or tertiary plastids, depending on the source of the organelle (a cyanobacterium or a photosynthetic eukaryote). Plastid phylogeny is relativelyExpand

Can cryptophyte abundance trigger toxic Karlodinium veneficum blooms in eutrophic estuaries
Abstract Karlodinium veneficum is a common member of the phytoplankton in coastal ecosystems, usually present at relatively low cell abundance (10 2 to 10 3  mL −1 ), but capable of forming blooms ofExpand

Dinoflagellate phylogeny revisited: using ribosomal proteins to resolve deep branching dinoflagellate clades.
The alveolates are composed of three major lineages, the ciliates, dinoflagellates, and apicomplexans. Together these 'protist' taxa play key roles in primary production and ecology, as well as inExpand
