Sea Squirt-Comparative Genomes

Image: Genome sequencing of sea squirt (Ciona intestinalis)

Caption: Here, on the Joint Genome Institute's website, the sea squirt genome is compared with those of a human, worm, fly, yeast, and that of Arabidopsis. The sea squirt serves as a model organism to study how more complex life evolved.
