An interesting piece on lateral gene transmission, the entire genome of one species in this case having been discovered inside another's: http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2007/08/the-great-bacte/#previouspost

Viewed an old episode of The Incredible Hulk last night. Bill Bixby meets paleontologist Kim Cattrall and the two investigate a prehistoric occurance of "Hulkism" (Bixby theorizes that radiation from an ancient nova might have triggered the gene that he himself carries). Epigenetics in 70s sci-fi tv...the mind boggles!
