  • Endosymbionts in Parameciumby Masahiro Fujishima

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 185.07

    Endosymbiosis is a primary force in eukaryotic cell evolution. In order to understand the molecular mechanisms involved in this mutualistic relationship, experiments to reproduce endosymbiosis are indispensable. The ciliate "Paramecium" is an ideal host for performing such studies. Topics presented in this volume are: the origins of algal... more...

  • Who Are We? Microbes the Puppet Masters!by Yuan Kun Lee

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 22.00

    Our genome is littered with scraps of DNA, termed “junk” DNAs, that serve no apparent purpose. Junk DNAs make up as much as 98.5% of our genome. Scientists believe that some junk DNAs came into existence millions of years ago, when viruses inserted their DNA into that of the human host. There is emerging evidence that suggests that these... more...
