Chlamydomonas

a flagellate, unicellular green alga now normally placed in the division CHLOROPHYTA but in many (older) texts regarded as a protozoan and placed in the class MASTIGOPHORA. It is characterized by the presence of two flagella (see FLAGELLUM and, because of the presence of CHROMATOPHORES (1), is referred to as a phytoflagellate (often given subclass status: Phytoflagellata). Reproduction is by repeated fission or varies between species from an asexual method to a sexual method of CONJUGATION where ISOGAMETES rather than differentiated male and female gametes are produced.

By contrast, m6dA is preferentially enriched at transcription start sites (TSSs), in promoter, genic, and intergenic regions [53], and in the nucleosome-linker DNA with an A-T sequence motif in Chlamydomonas [36,53].
