GENETICALLY, SEA ANEMONES ARE  HALF ANIMAL, HALF PLANT

A new study found that sea anemones are more similar to plants rather than vertebrates or insects in their regulation of gene expression.
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.
