“Many species of choanoflagellate live a colonial existence (though they all live solitary during some stages of their life cycle).”
“The emergent complexity of this circuitry inside the choanoflagellate remains mysterious, as it is not clear why such a simple life form needs it.”
“The choanoflagellate genome, like the genomes of many seemingly simple organisms sequenced in recent years, shows a surprising degree of complexity, King said.”
“Since then, the choanoflagellate lineage may have lost some essential genes needed to move toward metazoan evolution.”
“The choanoflagellate example also puts to rest a common criticism that was raised when I first began to propose front-loading.”
“New research into the choanoflagellate genome shows these ancient organisms have similar levels of proteins that cells in more complex organisms, including humans, use to communicate with each other. and:”
“By analyzing the recently-sequenced choanoflagellate genome, the researchers discovered another similarity between choanoflagellates and most metazoans – their genetic code caries the markers of three types of molecules that cells use to achieve phospho-tyrosine signaling proteins.”
“Recently, the choanoflagellate genome has been sequenced.”
“Here is a single-celled organism that contains multiple genes previously thought to be unique to animals and such animal-like genes have persisted in the choanoflagellate lineage for hundreds of millions of years even though they are clearly not essential for unicellular life.”
“(It looks like the choanoflagellate genome should be published pretty soon.)”

A couple of years ago on Wordie, I made the list Pseudorandom words. Let's see how the Wordnik random words compare: no panvocalics, more adverbs, more hyphenated words (or maybe I excluded them th...
