  • Protist large-scale phylogeny is briefly reviewed and a revised higher classification of the kingdom Protozoa into 11 phyla presented. Complementary gene fusions reveal a fundamental bifurcation among eukaryotes between two major clades: the ancestrally uniciliate (often unicentriolar) unikonts and the ancestrally biciliate bikonts, which undergo ciliary transformation by converting a younger anterior cilium into a dissimilar older posterior cilium. Unikonts comprise the ancestrally unikont… CONTINUE READING
