  • Motivation: There are two reasons for the increasing interest in sponges (Porifera). First, these simplest multicellular animals are key organisms to understand molecular evolution of Metazoa. Second, sponges are the richest source for bioactive compounds among all metazoan phyla. In addition, these animals turned out to be good bioindicators in environmental monitoring studies. A genome project (expression of functional sponge genome; http://spongebase.unimainz.de/cgi-bin/blast/blastserver.cgi… CONTINUE READING
