Abstract： Mitochondria and chloroplasts are now called organelles, but they used to be bacteria. Understanding the genetic, biochemical, and cell biological events that happened during the transition from 'bacterial endosymbiont' to 'organelle’ has been obscured by both time and by a lack of comparative examples. In this talk I will show how the long-term, stable endosymbioses of sap-feeding insects resemble the classic organelles in many ways, and describe some of the remarkably convoluted outcomes that occur when two (or more) cells become integrated with each other.
