E. siliculosus (Esil) and F. vesiculosus (Fves) cpDNAs were compared with those of other heterokonts, haptophyte (Hapto), cryptophytes (Crypto) and rhodophytes. Presence (+), absence (-) or presence of only a subset (+/-) of the genes listed in the first column is indicated. Species abbreviations: Vaucheria litorea (Vlit), Heterosigma akashiwo (Haka), Phaeodactylum tricornutum (Ptri), Odontella sinensis (Osin), Thalassiosira pseudonana (Tpeu), Emiliania huxleyi (Ehux), Guillardia theta (Gthe), Rhodomonas salina (Rsal), Gracilaria tenuistitipata (Gten), Porphyra purpurea (Ppur), Cyanidium caldarium (Ccal), Cyanidioschyzon merolae (Cmer).
