Discovery in algae reveals evolutionary origin of sexes

The finding of a master regulatory gene for sexes and mating types in this group of green algae shows that these two forms of reproduction share a common genetic origin, and hint that a similar evolutionary scenario may underlie the origin of sexes in animals, plants and other multicellular lineages.

The evolution of the Green Algae | SpringerLink

Phylogenetic analyses of complete 18S rDNAs from the green algae reveal the monophyletic origin of three independent evolutionary lineages, the classes Chlorophyceae, Trebouxiophyceae and Ulvophyceae with a basal divergence of a heterogenous assemblage of …

Transgenic, sex-swapped algae reveal potential genetic

An experiment in making sex-swapped algae has unveiled a genetic «master switch» in the evolution of sex differences, one of evolutionary biology’s lingering mysteries.

Useful Notes on the Origin and Evolution of Sex in Algae

Useful notes on the origin and evolution of sex in algae! Primarily there are two methods of reproduction in plant, i.e., asexual and sexual. In asexual type of reproduction, no sex is involved and there is no fusion of any kind of gametes or cells.

Evolution: Red Algal Genome Affirms a Common Origin of All

The tree shows the origin of green algal/plant chloroplasts and red algal plastids by a single primary endosymbiosis of a cyanobacteria-like endosymbiont. The subsequent secondary endosymbiotic origin of diatom, cryptomonad and malaria parasite plastids from a red alga is also shown.

Algae – Wikipedia

Algae constitute a polyphyletic group since they do not include a common ancestor, and although their plastids seem to have a single origin, from cyanobacteria, they were acquired in different ways. Green algae are examples of algae that have primary chloroplasts derived from endosymbiotic cyanobacteria.
