TitleA genome at the brink of extinction: the mitochondrial genome of Chromera velia encodes a single gene
Study TypeWhole Genome Sequencing
Abstract Mitochondrial genomes have all degenerated from the same bacterial ancestor, but to greatly different degrees. The most reduced genomes known are in apicomplexan parasites and dinoflagellates, where only three protein-coding and truncated rRNA genes have been found in a variety of unusual organizati .. [more]
