What are prokaryotes (“pro-carry-oats”)? They are a type of cell. The other type of cell is a eukaryote (“you-carry-oat”). The difference between the two is that the latter has a nucleus, in which the DNA sits, whereas prokaryotes have no nucleus and their DNA floats around freely. 300 more words

Eukaryotes: A new timetable of evolution

The first single-celled organisms with a nucleus originated more than a billion years later than biogeochemical evidence had previously indicated.

Contaminated samples have evidently created some confusion in the timetable of life. 1,333 more words

The Origins of Eukaryotes: Metagenomic insight into early evolution

The origins of the eukaryotic cell is one of the big puzzles of cell biology. While it has been known for a long time that the eukaryotes are more closely related to the Archaea than to the Bacteria, the ancestor of the eukaryotes has remained elusive. 365 more words
