The origin of eukaryotic cells has been a topic of discussion for many years. The split from prokaryotes to eukaryotes has been of major importance to understanding how complex organisms have been able to develop. To understand what caused this split, one has to look at different aspects of the development of the cell. The formations of certain organelles such as the nucleus and the mitochondria have been fundamental in the evolution of eukaryotes. Furthermore, the evolutionary relationship between Eukaryota and the other two domains can tell us more about the way eukaryotes have evolved from prokaryotes. Central to the improvement of these ideas, is the advancement of technology. Major breakthroughs in how we think have usually followed the advancement of the technology. Due to these advancements, new discoveries have recently been made and we might be facing another major development in how we think about eukaryotic origins.
