Paramecium tetraurelia (ASM16542v1)

About Paramecium tetraurelia

Paramecium tetraurelia is a unicellular ciliate, which is a model organism for the study of many biological processes. The Paramecium genome has diploid micronuclei and highly polyploid macronuclei (exact number unknown), is approximately 87Mbp in size, and has gone through at least three successive whole genome duplications.
