  • The genome for two species of Ciona is available making these tunicates excellent models for studies on the evolution of the chordates. In this review most of the data is from Ciona intestinalis, as the annotation of the C. savignyi genome is not yet available. The phylogenetic position of tunicates at the origin of the chordates and the nature of the genome before expansion in vertebrates allows tunicates to be used as a touchstone for understanding genes that either preceded or arose in… CONTINUE READING
