Members of the Chlamy community may be interested to learn that JGI 
has released draft versions of the Ostreococcus tauri and lucimarinus 
genomes:

 From the web site above: "Ostreococcus belongs to the Prasinophyceae, 
an early-diverging class within the green plant lineage, and is 
reported as a globally abundant, single-celled alga thriving in the 
upper (illuminated) water column of the oceans. The most striking 
feature of O. tauri and related species is their minimal cellular 
organization: a naked, nearly 1-micron cell, lacking flagella, with a 
single chloroplast and mitochondrion."
