Irish scientists solve multi-cell life mystery
A team of researches from the National University of Ireland (NUI) have mapped out the reason two single cells fused together into one living organism two-billion years ago to create human life.
"This was a remarkable event, which appears to have happened only once," said Dr. James McInerney, a senior biologist at the college.
"These two primitive single cell life forms came together in an event that
essentially allowed nature to grow big."
McInerney said not only will the research explain a lot of unsolved questions about human evolution it will also map out how insects, animals and plants came to be.
According to the Herald newspaper, the team have gathered information using genetics “from the mapping of the yeast genome, evidence of two originally single cells, known as prokaryotes, were discovered in a eukaryote which formed with a nucleus.”
“Researchers were able to show that yeast - a model system for molecular biology - contained one eukaryote genome which came from two distinct different prokaryote genomes.”
Said McInerney, "It is in the nucleus that we find the DNA of all species, and for years it had been a puzzle as to how the first nucleus was created. Now we know."

this is nothing but an immature nasty article to show that this ridiculous writer obviously does not like Sarah Palin. Yes there is a war on ChristmaNelson Mandela once considered a terrorist by many Irish political leaders
chuck: the men and women of 1916 wore uniforms. As for the American War of Independance,soldiers were executed by both sides for treason,espionage. AsJFK and the Sacred Heart were the twin pillars of life in Donegal
Ooh the little Donegal man made good.... why would a picture of JFK be in anyone's house in the eighties ?? Weird....Why is it that some (not all) IriBill O’Reilly slams Nelson Mandela as an unrepentant “communist”
Ugh .. this man... I sincerely hope I am not related to him anywhere down the line considering I am/was O'Reilly.... Does he really need to make comme
