Table 2 Predicted gene models in P. glacialis compared to representative publicly available dinoflagellate genomes. A more-comprehensive summary including gene models from all available dinoflagellate genomes is shown in Additional file 3: Supplementary Table 12. Genes from the Symbiodiniaceae taxa are based on the revised predictions from Chen et al. [39]

From: Genomes of the dinoflagellate Polarella glacialis encode tandemly repeated single-exon genes with adaptive functions
