About Amphimedon queenslandica

Amphimedon queenslandica (formerly A. reniera) is a sponge, and was discovered in 1998 and formally described in 2006 [1]. Despite its recent identification, this native of Great Barrier Reef has already proved itself a useful subject for the study of the evolutionary origins of metazoan development [2,3], and is the first member of phylum Porifera to have had its genome sequenced.
