” These two organisms, which are us, must still come to terms with each other, they are still trying to sort things out. Each of our cells is an ecological battleground. Mitochondria seem to be quick fighters because the mutational clock of their DNA ticks 10 times faster than that of nuclear DNA. We are not yet the final product.”
