 Chloroplasts and mitochondria are energy-converting
 organelles of 
 eukaryotic cells. They also contain small,
 specialised, functional 
 genomes. Their genetic and energy-converting systems
 are bacterial in 
 origin. But most genes for chloroplast and
 mitochondrial components are 
 now found in the cell nucleus. So why did some genes
 move, while others 
 did not?
