Multigene phylogenetics of euglenids based on single-cell transcriptomics of diverse phagotrophs

Mol Phylogenet Evol. 2021 Feb 2;159:107088. doi: 10.1016/j.ympev.2021.107088. Online ahead of print. ABSTRACT Euglenids are a well-known group of single-celled eukaryotes, with phototrophic, osmotrophic and phagotrophic members. Phagotrophs represent most of the phylogenetic diversity of euglenids, and gave rise to the phototrophs and osmotrophs, but their evolutionary relationships are poorly understood. Symbiontids, in contrast, are …
