Another highlight of the cultured Loki in : "Tentacled microbe could be missing link between simple cells and complex life". This time with comments from and me, and punchline by !
“This is the work that many people in the field have been waiting for:” a team of researchers has grown an organism from mud on the seabed that they say could explain how simple microbes evolved into more sophisticated eukaryotes.
“This is the work that many people in the field have been waiting for." After 12 years of trying, a team in Japan has grown an organism from mud on the seabed that they say could explain how simple microbes evolved into more sophisticated eukaryotes.

On Twitter, scientists are hailing a preprint about a newly discovered microbe as the “paper of the year” and the “moon landing for microbial ecology,” reports.
Prometheoarchaeum syntrophicum! Tentacled microbe could be missing link between simple cells and complex life
Today's #TwistedTreeOfLife Award to for news on new #Archaea -- modern organisms are NOT missing links & though this work is awesome these #Archaea cannot be ancestors of eukaryotes any more than chimps are ancestors of humans #Aarg
