Abstract

We have sequenced the transcriptomes of two Jakobids (Andalucia godoyi and Seculomonas ecuadoriensis). We will use these transcriptome to check for instances of horizontal gene transfer amongst Jakobids and bacteria. We will also focus on mitochondiral gene exchange between these organisms.
