This website provides access to a collection of mutant strains in the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, a powerful model system for studying a broad range of fundamental processes including the biology of chloroplasts, photosynthesis, cilia/flagella, eyespots, and algal lipid accumulation. The strains were generated by the Chlamydomonas Library Project (CLiP). Molecular details for each strain or each insertion are included. Strains found on this site can be ordered from the Chlamydomonas Resource Center located at the University of Minnesota.
This work was made possible by grants #MCB-1146621 and MCB-1914989 from the National Science Foundation.
The site now also presents localization and protein-protein interaction data from high-throughput studies funded by grants EF-1105617 and IOS-1359682 from NSF and DE-SC0020195 from the Department of Energy.
Note: Chlamydomonas strains from the regular Chlamydomonas Resource Center collection are not searchable from this site.
