Horizontal gene transfer in eukaryotic algal evolution Jason Raymond and Robert E. Blankenship*
 

Summary: Horizontal gene transfer in eukaryotic algal evolution

A
lthough seemingly innocuous,
the power of something as sim-
ple as a drop of water, given a
few millions of years over
which to act continually, is immediately
and awe-inspiringly obvious to someone
peering over the edge of the Grand
Canyon. Acting over a similarly im-
mense time period but on vastly differ-
ent scales, this massive effect from a
weak, but constant, force embodies how
natural selection has been able to direct
the evolution of once primitive, mal-
adapted biological structures to the re-
markable and almost inconceivably di-
verse molecular machines found within
