Chrysochromulina tobin cell structure
Chrysochromulina tobin cell structure. (A) Scanning electron micrograph of C. tobin. Two flagella are visible (marked F) along with the prominent coiled haptonema (white arrow). Scale bar represents 2.5 microns. (B) Electron micrograph of whole cell: Lipid body (LB); Mitochondrion (M); Chloroplast (C). Scale bar represents 500 nanometers.

The genome sequence and gene models of Chrysochromulina tobin have not been determined by the JGI, but were downloaded from LANL Greenhouse, on June 20, 2017. In order to allow comparative analyses with other genomes sequenced by the Joint Genome Institute, a copy of this genome is incorporated into the JGI Genome Portal. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by LANL and is therefore not automatically updated.

Chrysochromulina tobin CCMP291

Chrysochromulina tobin is a small (4 μm) unicellular alga is naturally wall-less, being delineated solely by a plasma membrane. It lacks scales or additional extracellular structures. Chrysochromulina tobin is a haptophyte and lives in fresh to brackish water. C. tobin is also mixotrophic using a long haptonema to hunt bacterial prey.
