Transformation of the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardii with yeast DNA

  title={Transformation of the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardii with yeast DNA},
  author={J.-D. Rochaix and J. van Dillewijn},
The development of a transformation system in the green unicellular alga Chlamydomonas reinhardii is important for two reasons. First, a large number of nuclear mutants of this organism have been characterized, including auxotrophs, cytoplasmic and chloroplast ribosome mutants, photosynthetic and flagellar mutants1,2. The isolation of wild-type genes from C. reinhardii and from other plants may be possible by complementation with an efficient transformation system. Second, modification and… CONTINUE READING
