BOOKMARKS > Chlamydomonas

Chlamydomonas Chlamydomonas is a single-cell green alga. The green algae (Chlorophyta) are not actually considered to be plants, but are thought to be related to the organisms that gave rise to the first plants. They are usually placed in the Kingdom Protista.

However, Chlamydomonas cells share many characteristics and biochemical processes with the cells of higher plants and are often used in research to study photosynthesis and other cellular events.
