Attempts were made to define the relationship among the three domains (eukaryotes, archaea, and eubacteria) using phylogenetic tree analyses of 16S rRNA sequences as well as of other protein sequences. Since the results are inconsistent, it is implied that the eukaryotic genome has a chimeric structure. In our previous studies, the origin of eukaryotes to be the symbiosis of archaea into eubacteria using the whole open reading frames (ORF) of many genomes was suggested. In these studies, the… CONTINUE READING
