Tomatoes, carrots and chillies are red in colour due to the presence of one pigment. Name the pigment. Is it a photosynthetic pigment?
Chloroplast and mitochondria contain additional genomic DNA. This improves organelles ' reproduction. Thus, semi-autonomous organelles are called Chloroplast and mitochondria, which contain additional genomic DNA. Because of this, they can replicate themselves. These organelles are therefore called semi-autonomous.
