Organelle evolution Endosymbiosis

Emma George and colleagues have discovered a highly complex community of endosymbionts and a phage within a single cryptomonad cell, which is a model for organelle evolution. The Cryptomonas cell is an endosymbiotic conglomeration with seven distinct evolving genomes that all show evidence of inter-lineage conflict but nevertheless remain stable, even after more than 4,000 generations in culture.
