Open Highlights: Mitochondria—a billion years of cohabitation

Curated Collections

An engulfment of a small bacterium by a larger archaeon more than a billion years ago resulted not in death, but in one of the most successful partnerships on earth. This Open Highlights Collection explores recent research into the interaction between mitochondria and their host cells. Open Highlights use recent PLOS Biology research articles as keystones around which to nucleate a short synthesis of up to ten related research articles from other PLOS journals and from the wider Open Access corpus.
