Bigelowiella natans (Bigna1)

About the Bigelowiella natans genome

Bigelowiella natans belongs to the eukaryotic 'supergroup' Rhizaria and it is a chlorarachniophyte alga. The chlorarachniophyte alga still possess the nucleomorph, nucleus from the endosymbiotic event in a highly reduced and simplified form. Proteins that function in the plastid of Bigelowiella natans are encoded in 3 separate genomes: the nucleus, the nucleomorph, and the plastid itself. The B.natans genome help in better understanding of the secondary endosymbiotic event.
