Chlamydomonas

Chlamydomonas is a genus of unicellular green algae. It is found in fresh water, oceans, snow on mountain tops, and soil. Chlamydomonas is an autotroph which means that it makes its own food. Chlamydomonas builds up starch through photosynthesis, and this starch allows Chlamydomonas to synthesize the materials it needs to survive.

Chlamydomonas is used as a model organism in cell and molecular biology.Chlamydomonas can grow in the dark if acetate is provided as a carbon source.
