Only two kinds of algae have been studied on a molecular level in greater detail, namely, Chlamydomonas reinhardii and Euglena gracilis. In an other cases the chloroplast DNA is as yet poorly characterized. An intensive study of other algal chloroplast DNA (cpDNA), however, would be of great interest in view of the very wide spectrum of anatomical and functional properties of algal chloroplasts that should have its parallel in a wide spectrum of different kinds of chloroplast genomes.
