Diatom genome reveals key role in biosphere's carbon cycle
...evealed by the genomic work. The research provided direct
genetic confirmation of a hypothesis that diatoms evolved when a heterotroph, a single-cell microbe, engulfed what scientists say was likely a kind of red alga. The two became one organism, an arrangement called endosymbiosis, and swapped some geneti...
