La vie en rouge

An international consortium of scientists has sequenced the complete genome of a multicellular red seaweed throwing light on 1500 million years of plant evolution.

In a paper published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, a team led by the Station Biologique de Roscoff (CNRS/UPMC*) in Brittany explains how sequencing the genome of the common red alga Irish moss (Chondrus crispus) has revealed more about the evolution of plants and algae than was previously understood.

Unveiling the mystery of "chameleon" cyanobacteria

Some strains of marine Synechococcus are capable of "chromatic acclimation", that is to modify their light-harvesting capacity to match the dominant color of their habitat. Thus, when grown in green light, these cyanobacteria can synthesize pigments that specifically catch this color, but when shifted to blue light they can, in less than a week, change their pigmentation to catch this new color.
