The start of bacterial genomics because the mid-1990s introduced withit a number of conceptual adjustments and utterly new controversies. operating past the scope of the neo-Darwinian evolutionary synthesis, a gaggle of major microbial evolutionists addresses the subsequent and similar concerns, usually with markedly different viewpoints:

? Did the eukaryotic nucleus, cytoskeleton and cilia additionally orginate from symbiosis?
? Do the present eventualities approximately he beginning of mitochondria and plastids require revision?
? what's the volume of lateral gene move (between "species") between bacteria?
? Does the rDNA phylogenetic tree nonetheless stand within the age of genomics?
? Is the process the 1st three billion years of evolution even knowable?
