Researchers have found evidence one tough species of algae steals its ability to endure extreme environments from the bacteria it preys upon.
Important genetic clues about the history of a group of ancient microorganisms called archaea and the origins of life itself have been discovered by a team of researchers.
The scientists have studied the genomes of more than 500 organisms.
The major difference between plant and animal cells is the photosynthetic process, which converts light energy into chemical energy.
