Abstract
    This review presents an account of the current knowledge concerning the endosymbiotic origin of plastids and mitochondria. The importance of algae as providing a large reservoir of diversified evolutionary models is emphasized. Several reviews describing the plastidial and mitochondrial genome organization and gene content have been published recently. Therefore we provide a survey of the different approaches that are used to investigate the evolution of organellar genomes since the endosymbiotic events. The importance of integrating population genetics concepts to understand better the global evolution of the cytoplasmically inherited organelles is especially emphasized.
