Gene exchange between species is aided by parasitism
...uggests Plantago weeds acquired the defective atp1 through
horizontal transfer recently -- not more than a few million years ago. The dodders' manner of attacking plants suggests a way DNA could have traveled between parasite and host, the IU scientists say. As part of their parasitism, dodder cells penetra...
