Chloroplast origins

Chris Taylor at Catalogue of Organisms has an absolutely stunning review of the origin of chloroplasts in eukaryotes. It’s so good I thought it was from Elio Schaechter’s blog Small Things Considered when it first popped up in my reader – higher praise there is not.

    Nice. Good to see how the secondary acquisitions are being sorted out.

    If you think that Christopher Taylor is blushing, Merry and I are aglow!

    Do go to Small Things Considered and play the Swine flu protein translated to music.

    I remember learning that chlorophyll had a heme structure like that of hemoglobin, but with a Magnesium ion in the center instead of an iron atom.
