Genome of ancient sponge reveals origins of first animals, cancer

ur common animal ancestor had them or not," Srivastava said.

The sponge genome may also have more practical implications, according to Degnan.

"Sponges produce an amazing array of chemicals of direct interest to the pharmaceutical industry," he said. "They also biofabricate silica fibers directly from sea water in an environmentally benign manner, which is of great interest in communications. With the genome in hand, we can decipher the methods used by these simple animals to produce materials that far exceed our current engineering and chemistry capabilities."
