The Cellular Revolution
John Archibald slides back in time as he details the many theories by biologists on cellular evolution. Using his epertise in molecular biology, he himself creates a theory of evolution that explains the creation of complex life in modern day.
"In One Plus One Equals One: Symbiosis and the Evolution of Complex Life, I tell the story of how molecular biology was used to test the endosymbiont hypothesis for the origins of mitochondria and chloroplasts. It was one of the first fundamental scientific problems to be addressed using molecular phylogenetics. The outcome marked a turning point in our understanding of cellular evolution" - Dr. John Archibald, Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Dalhousie University.
