  • Chloromonas (Cr.), is used as a model organism for molecular biology, is a genus of green algae consisting of unicellular flagellates, found in stagnant water and on damp soil, in freshwater, seawater, and even in snow. It is a unicellular biflagellate in the green algal order Volvocales, is traditionally distinguished from its close relative, Chlamydomonas (Cd.), by lacking pyrenoids in its chloroplasts, and several species in these genera have been reassessed recently with respect to their taxonomy. Chloromonas has more species identified from cold habitats than does Chlamydomonas, and many of these taxa reside in snow[1] [2].
