The Penium margaritaceum Genome: Hallmarks of the Origins of Land PlantsThe genome sequence of Penium margaritaceum reveals that this freshwater algal species and member of the sister lineage to land plants contains several advantageous features for life on land, including an expanded repertoire of genes for cell wall biosynthesis, traces of pathways to form hydrophobic polymer classes that limit water loss, and flavonoid pigments that protect against UV radiation.The genome sequence of Penium margaritaceum reveals that this freshwater algal species and member of the sister lineage to land plants contains several advantageous features for life on land, including an expanded repertoire of genes for cell wall biosynthesis, traces of pathways to form hydrophobic polymer classes that limit water loss, and flavonoid pigments that protect against UV radiation.Chen Jiao, Iben Sørensen, Xuepeng Sun, Honghe Sun, Hila Behar, Saleh Alseekh, Glenn Philippe, Kattia Palacio Lopez, Li Sun, Reagan Reed, Susan Jeon, Reiko Kiyonami, Sheng Zhang, Alisdair R.
