    This is an interesting notion. Organelles that we find inside of eukaryotic cells are somewhat like a cell within a cell. This is because they both have a lipid bi-layer separating them from the outside environment. A mitochondria is a good example of this; and in biology, mitochondria have their own set of DNA, separate from that found in the nucleus.
    I believe, in short, that is what the professor is implying.
