The genome architecture of ciliates, including features such as nuclear dualism and large-scale genome rearrangements, impacts gene and genome evolution in these organisms. To better understand the structure of macronuclear chromosomes in ciliates with extensively processed chromosomes, a sample of complete macronuclear chromosomes was sequenced from three ciliate species: Metopus es (Class [Cl]: Armophorea), Nyctotherus ovalis (Cl: Armophorea), and Chilodonella uncinata (Cl: Phyllopharyngea… CONTINUE READING
