comment How many times did endosymbiosis occur?
Long and speculative -- in short, aerobic bacteria are postulated to be ingested by larger, anaerobic ones which required something to reduce oxygen level inside its cells. I think you should ask a new question about it.

comment Could Junk DNA be used as a Turing Machine by nature?
The whole cell is definitely capable enough to exhibit all features of Turing-complete computer, so there is no reason why to use ncDNA to this task, especially when it works well as a separator and variability reservoir.

Most insects have similar resistance to cockroaches... IMO it is more that humans are weak than insects are strong.
