Transcriptome sequencing (RNA-seq) analysis of the effects of metal nanoparticle exposure on the transcriptome of Chlamydomonas
The breakthrough came two years later when scientists discovered a light-responsive protein called channelrhodopsin in a single-celled algae called Chlamydomonas

Autar Mattoo, a plant physiologist with ARS's Sustainable Agricultural Systems Laboratory in Beltsville, Maryland, and his colleagues placed samples of the alga Chlamydomonas
reinhardtii in airtight "photo cells" and had them launched in a Russian-made Soyuz space capsule from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.
Functional analysis of three type-2 DGAT homologue genes for triacylglycerol production in the green microalga Chlamydomonas
reinhardtii removal of major nutrients (nitrogen, phosphate and sulfate), as well as temperature stress (L and H) and UV light exposure, accounted for the majority of the observed changes, although each condition could be correlated with at least some variation.

Additionally, the Company stated that the GeneArt Chlamydomonas
Protein Expression Kits and GeneArt Synechoccus Protein Expression Kits contain high-expression vectors capable of driving production of genes of interest to as much 10% of total cellular protein.
Olaf Kruse and his team cultivated the microscopically small green alga species Chlamydomonas
reinhardtii in a low carbon dioxide environment and observed that when faced with such a shortage, these single-cell plants can draw energy from neighboring vegetable cellulose instead.
Instead, the biologists looked to produce their proteins with the help of an edible green alga, Chlamydomonas
reinhardtii, used widely in research laboratories as a genetic model organism, much like the fruit fly Drosophila and the bacterium E.

They hope to use an algae-based organism called Chlamydomonas
to harvest energy from sunlight and convert carbon dioxide into a replacement for petroleum.
