Think you know mitochondria? Think again says Michael W Gray

“I never learned to do taxes at school but I know the mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell.” The phrase “the mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell” has become a common punchline in a lot of jokes online, but how much do people really know about mitochondria? Michael W. Gray gives Craft the chance to learn about some of the theories surrounding this organelle, particularly the fact that the mitochondria very likely started off as a separate bacteria that was absorbed by cells a long time ago. He will be giving a talk at Science Sundays on November 18th on the different theories surrounding mitochondria from 3-5 at the Ohio Union Bank Conference Theatre.
