In our invited scientist section, we share content created by other Scientists.
For this very first blog in this series, we have a video created by dr. Dave Speijer. A great mitochondrion enthusiast. Now we all know that mitochondria are the most important organelle in your cells but it also tells us a lot about how eukaryotic life evolved.
However, there are different theories about how the pre-mitochondrion evolved and what the nature of the ‘host’ cell was and Scientists do not agree on this subject. In this video, Dave Speijer explains the different theories and makes a case for his preferred theory: symbiogenisis.
