Eukaryotes have organelles. Prokaryotes have few internal components (organelles). Endosymbiotic
origin: mitochondria, plastids. Mitochondria and plastids have two membranes and have their own DNA.
Protist derived from cyanobacteria. Organelles thrive from eukaryotes.
Evidence for relatedness: homology, descend from common ancestor, can be organ, organelle, feature.
Genes sequences can accumulate
