Genomics and chloroplast evolution: what did cyanobacteria do for plants?

Raven, J A and Allen, John LU (2003) In GenomeBiology 4(3). p.1-209
Abstract
The complete genome sequences of cyanobacteria and of the higher plant Arabidopsis thaliana leave no doubt that the plant chloroplast originated, through endosymbiosis, from a cyanobacterium. But the genomic legacy of cyanobacterial ancestry extends far beyond the chloroplast itself, and persists in organisms that have lost chloroplasts completely.
