Title Mesostigma viride genome and transcriptome provide insights into the origin and evolution of Streptophyta [Bisulfite-seq]
Organism Mesostigma viride
Experiment type Methylation profiling by high throughput sequencing
Summary The Streptophyta include unicellular and multicellular charophyte green algae and land plants. Colonization of the terrestrial habitat by land plants was a major evolutionary event that has transformed our planet. So far lack of genome information on unicellular charophyte algae hinders our understanding of the origin and the evolution from unicellular to multicellular life in Streptophyta. This work reports the high-quality reference genome and transcriptome of Mesostigma viride, a single-celled charophyte alga with a position at the base of Streptophyta. There are abundant segmental duplications and transposable elements in M. viride, which contribute to a relatively large genome with high gene content compared to other algae and early diverging land plants. This work identifies the origin of genetic tools that multicellular Streptophyta have inherited and key genetic innovations required for evolution of land plants from unicellular aquatic ancestors. The findings shed light on the age-old questions of the evolution of multicellularity and the origin of land plants.
Overall design Bisulfite-seq with two replicates.
