Single-celled Models of Photosymbiosis

We study two models of eukaryotic photosymbiosis from freshwater and marine habitats:

In Freshwater habitat

The freshwater symbiosis between the ciliate Paramecium bursaria and the green alga Chlorella spp.

In the Ocean

The marine symbiosis between radiolarians and haptophytes or dinoflagellates microalgae.
