Assembling and Mining the Genomes of Giant Antarctic Foraminifera
Entry ID: USAP-1341612_1


Summary
Abstract: Agglutinated foraminifera (forams for short) are early-evolving, single-celled organisms. These "living fossils" construct protective shells using sediment grains held together by adhesive substances that they secrete. During shell construction, agglutinated forams display amazing properties of selection - for example, some species build their shells of clear quartz grains, while other species use ...
