  • Diplonema papillatum is the type species of diplonemids, which are among the most abundant and diverse heterotrophic microeukaryotes in the world's oceans. Diplonemids are also known for a unique form of post-transcriptional processing in mitochondria. However, the lack of reverse genetics methodologies in these protists has hampered elucidation of their cellular and molecular biology. Here we report a protocol for D. papillatum transformation. We have identified several antibiotics to which D… CONTINUE READING
