The molecular diversity of phagotrophic Euglenids examined using single-cell methods

Gordon Lax & Alastair Simpson
Euglenids are a diverse group of euglenozoan flagellates that includes phototrophs, osmotrophs, andphagotrophs. Despite making up most of the phylogenetic diversity of euglenids, phagotrophs remain understudied, and recent work has focused on ‘deep-branching’ groups. Spirocuta is the large clade encompassing all flexible euglenids including the phototroph and primary osmotroph clades, plus various phagotrophs. Understanding the phylogenetic diversity of phagotrophic spirocutes is crucial for tracing euglenid evolution, including how phototrophs arose.We used single-cell approaches to greatly...
