, diverse group of bacteria (prokaryotes), sometimes called the archaea and considered a major group unto themselves. Archaebacteria are contrasted with the Eubacteria, from which they differ biochemically in the arrangement of the bases in their ribosomal RNA and

hollandica was the most dominant population that produced the highest number (523 proteins), followed by Methanosarcina (60 proteins), Methanolobus (29 proteins), uncultured archaeon (14 proteins), and Methanococcoides (12 proteins) in order.
With these tools we can infer that this mutation could cause greater destabilization of the primase larger subunit (PriL) of the archaeon Sulfolobus solfataricus.

He describes how these constraints affected the later evolution of cells and kept bacteria and archaea simple organisms, and how an endosymbiosis in which one bacterium got inside an archaeon broke those constraints and enabled the evolution of more complex cells, and why it only happened once.
