Excellent article. I very much enjoyed the detailed discussion of alternative hypotheses
and phylogenies. I didn't know about the chlamydial role on plastid origin until I
read a recent article confirming and expanding the results presented here:
Moustafa A, Reyes-Prieto A, Bhattacharya D (2008) Chlamydiae Has Contributed at Least 55 Genes to Plantae with Predominantly Plastid
Functions. PLoS ONE 3(5): e2205. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0002205
At the PLoS ONE site I have posted a comment/question (that of the title of the present
comment), in case anybody can contribute to the discussion.
