Background: Cryptophytes are an enigmatic group of unicellular eukaryotes with plastids derived
by secondary (i.e., eukaryote-eukaryote) endosymbiosis. Cryptophytes are unusual in that they
possess four genomes­a host cell-derived nuclear and mitochondrial genome and an
endosymbiont-derived plastid and 'nucleomorph' genome. The evolutionary origins of the host and
