Reconstruction of ancestral genomes. Evolutionary relationships of the major groups included in his study2. Different categories of HG are indicated in each node, from top to bottom, Ancestral HG, Novel HG, Novel Core HG, and Lost HG. Values assume sponges as the sister group to other animals, and placozoans as sister group to Planulozoa (=Cnidaria + Bilateria); alternative phylogenetic hypotheses are explored in Supplementary Data 3-8. Organism outlines from phylopic.org and the authors
