- We can order this
The presence/absence of gene families with central roles in endomembrane and cytoskeleton dynamics in a variety of eukaryotic taxa and an understanding of eukaryote phylogeny allow the cellular machineries present in the last common ancestor of eukaryotes to be accurately reconstructed. Such a reconstruction is fundamental in order to understand eukaryotic diversification, since this is the ancestral cell from which all diversity arose. This book discusses the evolutionary origin and diversification of eukaryotic endomembranes and cytoskeleton from a cell biological and comparative genomic perspective.
