Prison escape by cellular inmates?

What you see in the picture below looks like some kind of primitive fungal colony, releasing spores. In was in fact derived from a colony of serum-arrested mouse L-1210 cells degrading under a coverslip. The immediate reaction of a tissue … Continue reading

Introduction

My blog is about the possible evolution of eukaryotes from prokaryotes which has been a topic of considerable controversy. Recently, a publication has been forthcoming that suggests that eukaryotes did indeed evolve from prokaryotes…at least once through a chromosomal fusion … Continue reading
