Scientists study genome of the Trichoplax

Scientists study genome of the Trichoplax: "U.S. biologists say they've sequenced the genetic code of a simple saltwater creature to investigate how gene groups function in humans and other species.
Rice University Assistant Professor Nicholas Putnam said the study focused on the Trichoplax, a simple saltwater creature that one might find anywhere in the world, even in a household aquarium."
