During evolution, the cell as a fine‐tuned machine had to undergo permanent adjustments to match changes in its environment, while “closed for repair work” was not possible. Evolution from protists (protozoa and unicellular algae) to multicellular organisms may have occurred in basically two lineages, Unikonta and Bikonta, culminating in mammals and angiosperms (flowering plants), respectively. Unicellular models for unikont evolution are myxamoebae (Dictyostelium) and increasingly also… Expand
