    The Mars1 kinase confers photoprotection through signaling in the chloroplast unfolded protein response

    Karina Perlaza et al.
    A genetic screen in a unicellular photosynthetic organism uncovers the first essential signaling component in the chloroplast unfolded protein response that relays information from the chloroplast to the nuclear compartment.

    Natural selection and repeated patterns of molecular evolution following allopatric divergence

    Yibo Dong et al.
    The genomic architecture of allopatric species is a mosaic of many conserved genes and a few adaptive ones, reflecting balance between conservation of ancestral functions and evolution of new features.

    Apicomplexan-like parasites are polyphyletic and widely but selectively dependent on cryptic plastid organelles

    Jan Janouškovec et al.
    Apicomplexan-like parasites originated several times independently and many of them contain cryptic plastid organelles, which demonstrate that the parasites evolved from photosynthetic algae.

    Light-dependent single-cell heterogeneity in the chloroplast redox state regulates cell fate in a marine diatom

    Avia Mizrachi et al.
    Single-cell analysis of the chloroplast redox response to high light and oxidative stress revealed light-dependent heterogeneity, and was linked to cell fate determination within isogenic diatom populations.

    Algal-fungal symbiosis leads to photosynthetic mycelium

    Zhi-Yan Du et al.
    The capacity for symbiosis between photosynthetic microalgae and early diverging lineages fungi was demonstrated with microscopy and stable isotope exchange of carbon and nitrogen.

    Symbiosis: Algae and fungi move from the past to the future

    Paola Bonfante
    The ability of photosynthetic algae to enter the hyphae of a soil fungus could tell us more about the evolution of these species.

    The genomes of polyextremophilic cyanidiales contain 1% horizontally transferred genes with diverse adaptive functions

    Alessandro W Rossoni et al.
    Horizontal gene transfer (HGT) analysis in polyextremophile red algae (Cyanidiales) provides explanations for the nonexistence of cumulative effects and eukaryotic pangenomes, and highlights differences between HGT and native genes.

    Gene Transfer: Adapting for life in the extreme

    Carolin M Kobras, Daniel Falush
    Red algae have adapted to extreme environments by acquiring genes from bacteria and archaea.

    Heterogeneity in surface sensing suggests a division of labor in Pseudomonas aeruginosa populations

    Catherine R Armbruster et al.
    Subpopulations of polysaccharide producer and surface explorer cells play specialized roles in early Pseudomonas aeruginosa biofilm formation.
