In a recent article from Science Daily, it states that tube-dwelling anemones have the largest mitochondrial genome on record. They contain about 81,000 base pairs where, according to a journal entitled Scientific Reports, human mitochondrial DNA has less than 17,000 base pairs. Meg Daly was saying that since they have simple behavior and movements that scientists always believed them to be simple creatures. The article states that the mitochondrial DNA of a tube-dwelling anemone defies the typical circular shape and is arranged in fragmented pieces. Daly and other scientists are trying to find an evolutionary explanation for this.
