Evolutionary Evidence

I've not posted one of these for a while, there are so many "more proof of evolution" announcements, it was all getting a bit samey, but I thought this half-animal half-plant discovery was evidence worth highlighting...
"Sea anemone is genetically half animal, half plant
Date: March 18, 2014
Source: University of Vienna
Summary: Evolutionary and developmental biologists have discovered that sea anemones display a genomic landscape with a complexity of regulatory elements similar to that of fruit flies or other animal model systems. This suggests that this principle of gene regulation is already 600 million years old and dates back to the common ancestor of human, fly and sea anemone."

The article concludes...
"In summary, while the sea anemone's genome, gene repertoire and gene regulation on the DNA level is surprisingly similar to vertebrates, its post-transcriptional regulation is plant-like and probably dates back to the common ancestor of animals and plants."
