Phylogenomics Revives Traditional Views on Deep Animal Relationships
Improved Phylogenomic Taxon Sampling Noticeably Affects Nonbilaterian Relationships
This work recovers monophyletic Porifera as the sister group to all other Metazoa and suggests that the basal position of the fast-evolving Ctenophora proposed by Dunn et al. was due to LBA and that broad taxon sampling is of fundamental importance to metazoan phylogenomic analyses.
Global Diversity of Sponges (Porifera)
Results obtained demonstrate that regional approaches to analytical biogeography are at present more likely to achieve insights into the biogeographic history of sponges than a global perspective, which appears currently too ambitious.
Diversity, structure and convergent evolution of the global sponge microbiome
It is shown that sponges are a reservoir of exceptional microbial diversity and major contributors to the total microbial diversity of the world's oceans, and a model of independent assembly and evolution in symbiont communities across the entire host phylum is supported.
Congruence between nuclear and mitochondrial genes in Demospongiae: a new hypothesis for relationships within the G4 clade (Porifera: Demospongiae).
The HMA-LMA Dichotomy Revisited: an Electron Microscopical Survey of 56 Sponge Species
This study significantly expands previous reports on microbial abundances in sponge tissues and contributes to a better understanding of the HMA-LMA dichotomy in sponge-microbe symbioses.

The complete mitochondrial genomes of two reptiles, the common iguana and the caiman, were sequenced in order to investigate phylogenetic questions of tetrapod evolution and corroborated the view that turtles are at the base of the bird–crocodile branch.
Deep phylogeny and evolution of sponges (phylum Porifera).
Phylogeography and conservation genetics of endangered European Margaritiferidae (Bivalvia: Unionoidea)
The genetic study explores allozymic variability (27 loci) and differentiation at the mitochondrial sequence level (partial COI and 16S rRNA gene sequences) and phylogenetic relationships between these two species and other related taxa were established.
CO1 phylogenies in diploblasts and the 'Barcoding of Life' — are we sequencing a suboptimal partition?
The complete mitochondrial genome sequences from Anthozoa and recently from Porifera allow us to compare the resolution power of the 5′′ partition, which has also been proposed as the standard marker for DNA barcoding, with a less frequently used partition further downstream, and report on the finding of significantly different substitution patterns of the downstream partition opposed to the 5″′ partition.
