Draft Genome Sequences of Four Species of Chlamydomonas Containing Phosphatidylcholine

Genome Announc. 2016 Sep 29;4(5):e01070-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01070-16.


Phosphatidylcholine (PC) is one of the essential phospholipids for most eukaryotes. Although the model green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii lacks PC, four species containing PC were found in the genus Chlamydomonas Here, we report the draft genome sequences of the four species of Chlamydomonas containing PC.
