  • Plastid Origins The glaucophytes, represented by the alga Cyanophora paradoxa, are the putative sister group of red and green algae and plants, which together comprise the founding group of photosynthetic eukaryotes, the Plantae. In their analysis of the genome of C. paradoxa, Price et al. (p. 843; see the Perspective by Spiegel) demonstrate a unique origin for the plastid in the ancestor of this supergroup, which retains much of the ancestral diversity in genes involved in carbohydrate… CONTINUE READING
