Genome evolution of a non-parasitic secondary heterotroph, the diatom Nitzschia putrida
Secondary loss of photosynthesis is observed across almost all plastid-bearing branches of the eukaryotic tree of life. However, genome-based insights into the transition from a phototroph into a secondary heterotroph have so far only been revealed for parasitic species. Free-living organisms can yield unique insights into the evolutionary consequence of the loss of photosynthesis, as the parasitic lifestyle requires specific adaptations to host environments. Here we report on the diploiddoi:10.1101/2021.01.24.427197 fatcat:7ql2sqkpdrhldmdra5okdq4oli
