The Ciliate Protozoan Tetrahymena thermophila. Tetrahymena is a freshwater organism found in ponds, lakes and streams. SEM

Tetrahymena is often used in genetic research because researchers can shut off individual genes and evaluate the consequences of the mutation on the cell. Like many ciliates, the cells are large, highly complex and specialized. The first ribosome's and the enzyme telomerase were discovered through research using the Tetrahymena.
