Proteome nameChlamydomonas reinhardtii CC-503 - Reference proteome
Proteome IDiUP000006906
Taxonomy3055 - Chlamydomonas reinhardtii
Last modifiedFebruary 4, 2017
Genome assembly and annotationi GCA_000002595.2 from ENA/EMBL

Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is a single-celled green alga found in freshwater and soil throughout the world. It has been widely studied because of its adaptability to different environments and short generation time.

Chlamydomonas reinhardtii has the ability to use alternative carbon sources in the absence of light and has been the experimental material of choice for major studies in photosynthesis. It is also used as a model system for studying the structure and function of eukaryotic flagellae (cilia).

Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is haploid, and has a nuclear genome comprising 17 chromosomes with a total size of 110 Mb, a 203 kb chloroplast genome and a 16 kb mitochondrial genome, with 14,000 protein-coding genes. The reference proteome for Chlamydomonas reinhardtii has been derived from the genome sequence prepared by the JGI Chlamydomonas sequencing project ( A).
