Mitochondria: Much Stranger than You Think

"Any view of things that is not strange is false" - Neil Gaiman, The Sandman.

Moselio Schaechter has a post at Small Things Considered on fission and fusion of mitochondria that's well worth a look - it certainly managed to teach me a lot in a short time. I didn't know how much the mechanics of division differed between mitochondria of different eukaryotes. I didn't even know there was such a thing as mitochondrial fusion. Enjoy!
