    Genome editing enables reverse genetics of multicellular development in the choanoflagellate Salpingoeca rosetta

    David S Booth, Nicole King
    Genome editing in the choanoflagellate Salpingoeca rosetta opens newfound possibilities to functionally probe choanoflagellate genes that may illuminate the origin of their closest relatives, the animals.

    The rosetteless gene controls development in the choanoflagellate S. rosetta

    Tera C Levin et al.
    The establishment of forward genetics in S. rosetta reveals the first gene known to be required for choanoflagellate multicellular development.

    Aerotaxis in the closest relatives of animals

    Julius B Kirkegaard et al.
    The colony-forming choanoflagellate Salpingoeca rosetta is capable of moving towards oxygen using logarithmic sensing of oxygen concentrations and a navigation strategy that involves random movements.

    A bacterial sulfonolipid triggers multicellular development in the closest living relatives of animals

    Rosanna A Alegado et al.
    The development of colonies of cells in choanoflagellates, water-dwelling organisms that feed on bacteria, is triggered by the presence of very low concentrations of a lipid molecule produced by certain types of bacteria.

    Evolution of an ancient protein function involved in organized multicellularity in animals

    Douglas P Anderson et al.
    Experimentally reconstructing the evolution of the molecular complex that animals use to orient the mitotic spindle establishes a simple genetic and physical mechanism for the emergence of a function essential for multicellularity.

    Combining growth-promoting genes leads to positive epistasis in Arabidopsis thaliana

    Hannes Vanhaeren et al.
    Pairwise combinations of growth-promoting genes regulating distinct cellular mechanisms lead to synergistic effects on leaf growth, and hence greatly increased leaf size.
