Chlamydomonas
uniquely suited are phototaxis, cell wall
synthesis, mating reactions and gameto-
genesis, and the metabolism of carbon,
nitrogen, and sulfur. It is anticipated that
the forthcoming sequencing of the nu-
clear genome of
C. reinhardtii
will further
enhance the power of this unicellular alga
for biological studies.
