Abstract Algae provide a useful set of model organisms. The most versatile of them is Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, a powerful genetic model with a genome sequence available. This chapter discusses the regulation of cell growth and the cell cycle in the green algae Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, Scenedesmus quadricauda, and Ostreococcus tauri, and the red alga Cyanidioschyzon merolae.
