    tides, molecular studies of polyketide biosynthesis have returned many surprises, and new paradigms emerge fre-quently. This and the lack of any information on PKSs from dinoflagellates prompted us to screen 4 dinoflagellate species for genes encoding type II PKS as well. We chose to screen by reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction

    The biosynthesis of polyketides is modular at many levels. First, the genes responsible for polyketide biosynthesis are typically clustered in the genome (Chen et al., 2006), forming a BGC. Each BGC encodes the PKS responsible for the formation of the carbon backbone, together with the tailoring enzymes required for primary tailoring events
