(Part of presentation to support a common "evolutionary" development of 
eukaryotes) I've looked and looked for hours now and found many interesting 
points on "endosymbiosis" and hox genes but I can't seem to find any % for 
common genes in animals and plants. There must be similar genes for chromatin 
and polymerase in the nuclear DNA!    I heard once that 40% of eukaryotes 
genes are conserved from their Pre-Cambrian ancestors and it seems possible 
but I can't find please.....
