Congratulations Paco! The Zumberge et al paper “Demosponge steroid biomarker 26-methylstigmastane provides evidence for Neoproterozoic animals” in Nature Ecology and Evolution, which suggests sponges might have evolved 100 million years earlier than their oldest recognizable fossils and contributes to shedding light on the early steps of animal evolution, is a runner-up to the Science magazine “Breakthrough of the Year 2018”, making it in the top 10 advances of last year!!
