Although forward genetic screens have identified a number of RNA silencing components, Chlamydomonas reinhardtii provides an ideal system to establish such screens. Due to its ease of mutagenesis, single tissue-type, ability to survive without small RNAs and haploid nature, a wider range of silencing mutants can be obtained through this system. Here, I present three different mutant screens established in C. reinhardtii to identify novel components of the miRNA and chromatin silencing ways and to elucidate how they work in C. reinhardtii. I also outline a reverse genetics approach to determine the mechanism of chromatin silencing in C. reinhardtii
