Plant Cell Biology Chlorophyll fluorescence
A research web site authored and maintained by John F. Allen
Chloroplasts and mitochondria are energy-converting organelles of eukaryotic cells. They also contain small, specialised, functional genomes.
Their genetic and energy-converting systems are bacterial in origin. But most genes for chloroplast and mitochondrial components are now found in the cell nucleus.
So why did some genes move, while others did not?
