Scientists have long pondered the question of how simple "prokaryotic" cells, like bacteria, which are little more than a membrane-bound sack, evolved into more complex eukaryotic cells, which contain numerous internal membrane compartments.
Similar yeast assembly lines might stitch together chromosomes from other eukaryotic organisms such as humans, fruit flies, mice or plants.
Chromatin is the combination of DNA and proteins that makes up the contents of the nucleus of a eukaryotic cell.
The fossil history of reef building and collapse is used as a porthole through which the construction of the eukaryotic cell can be viewed.
That's a provocative statement, considering that the nucleus is the unifying feature of eukaryotic cells and is the source of their name.

First discussing how genomes are organized in prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms, the authors then move to descriptions of enzymes and reactions used in simple gene manipulations, how they are cloned and identified, genomics, sequencing, recombinant DNA methods, research uses, and forensic and medical applications.
But if holoenzymes prove essential in yeast, transcription in other eukaryotic organisms, including mammals, should work similarly, says Ronald C.
Axonal transport and neurotransmitter release, for example, are now known to occur by mechanisms that are related to those of membrane trafficking and secretion used by all eukaryotic cells, and the neurofilaments whose unusual staining properties allowed neuroanatomists to trace axonal tracts are now recognized as part of a larger family of intermediate filaments found in many cell types.
