Dictionary » C » Chlamydomonas



chlamydomonas is a genus of green alga. They are unicellular flagellates. Chlamydomonas is used as a model organism for molecular biology, especially studies of flagellar motility and chloroplast dynamics, biogenesis, and genetics. One of the many striking features of chlamydomonas is that it contains ion channels that are directly activated by light, such as channelrhodopsin.
