The plastid genome of the colorless, nonphotosynthetic protist Astasia longa resembles that of the photoautotrophic species Euglena g r a d i s but is only half the size (73 kb instead of 143 kb). A large number of intact ribosomal protein genes, rRNA genes, and tRNA genes have been identified in the 50% of Astasia ptDNA that has been sequenced (Siemeister… CONTINUE READING
