Cool Endosymbiotic Algae in a vertebrate!


This article discusses a pretty interesting case of endosymbiosis, the first of its kind seen in vertebrates. I am very curious about how the algae actually gets in their cells and if there is some bizarre vertical transmission mechanism as mentioned in the article.

Don't worry it's short, no TLDRs!

Original paper is here.
