Tetrahymena thermophila is a ciliate belonging to the order Hymenostomatida within the unicellular eukaryotic organisms (protists). Like other ciliates, it shows nuclear dimorphism with a micronucleus (MIC) and a macronucleus (MAC) representing the germline and the somatic functions, respectively. The MAC derives from the MIC after sexual conjugation, yet is quite different due to various rearrangements. T. thermophila is used as a model organism for unicellular biology.

The genome of strain SB210 was published in 2006. It comprises 104 Mb and about 27,000 predicted protein-coding genes in approximately 225 chromosomes.
