Biological Chemistry of Organelle Formation

Eukaryotic cells include a plurality of organelles unique by way of their particular membranes and contents. Their biogenesis happens through development and department of preexisting constructions instead of de novo. Mitochondria and chloroplasts, which seem to be descended from prokaryotic ancestors, have retained a few DNA and the biosynthetic potential for its expression.

Will emerging nanotechnologies present a threat to our environment? Are we able to assess the toxic effect of very small particles? Do current approaches to assess and control chemicals consider cradle to grave options? Do research outputs adequately consider implementation needs and operational practice? Some solutions are already available but uptake and practical application are often difficult and other questions will require improved and effective dialogue between the scientists and the policy-makers.
