Studies on Mitoplastide Genome and Origin of Mitochondria and Chloroplast in Plants

All existing photosynthetic species are descended from a single evolutionary line of cells’ primitive photosynthetic operon. The existence of a mitoplastide genome in an aerobic oxygen-non-producing proto-eukaryote was hypothesised in this proposal. The entire mitochondrial replicon and photosynthetic gene cluster are contained within this genome, which is surrounded by membrane. Mitoplastide genome duplication and gene…
