Evolution of chloroplasts: addressing the genomic processes behind acquisition of secondary and tertiary organelles

The dinoflagellate chloroplasts (plastids) originate from eukaryotic photosynthetic endosymbionts. Rather than being derived from a single group (being monophyletic) the plastids of dinoflagellates are originate from several organism groups and are thus of polyphyletic origin. Most dinoflagellat...
