  1. Understanding Animal Evolution: The Added Value of Sponge Transcriptomics and Genomics.Emmanuelle Renard, Sally P. Leys, Gert Wörheide & Carole Borchiellini - 2018 - Bioessays 40 (9):1700237.
    Sponges are important but often‐neglected organisms. The absence of classical animal traits (nerves, digestive tract, and muscles) makes sponges challenging for non‐specialists to work with and has delayed getting high quality genomic data compared to other invertebrates. Yet analyses of sponge genomes and transcriptomes currently available have radically changed our understanding of animal evolution. Sponges are of prime evolutionary importance as one of the best candidates to form the sister group of all other animals, and genomic data are essential to (...)
