Hongkongensis, a dispersed but syntenic grouping of Gsc-Prop-Otp-Vsx-Hbx-Rax-Otx has been recovered on scaffold 6034 (Fig.6). Considering that Gsc and Otx are also linked to the HRO cluster in amphioxus , we suggest that the ancestral HRO cluster consisted of more PRD members, including at least Gsc and Otx (see also ). In addition, the LIM family gene Isl has been proposed to be part of an ancient PRD-LIM class Giga-cluster , which is consistent with our data to the extent that Isl is syntenic with the members of the PRD-class cluster in M. Homeobox-containing genes encode crucial transcription factors involved in animal, plant and fungal development, and changes to homeobox genes have been linked to the evolution of novel body plans and morphologies.

In the meantime, TNC is continuing to expand its operations. The group is now recycling oyster shells from local restaurants as substrates for larvae to grow on. With help from local communities, TNC has collected about 36 metric tons of discarded shells and placed about 21 metric tons of them on the seabed in three of its projects. Their efforts have proven remarkably effective. While most oyster reef restoration projects require seeding with juvenile oysters cultivated in hatcheries, the waters at the four Hong Kong sites teem with so much larvae that the oysters grow independently. The only thing they need is a substrate to attach to, such as the new concrete-post reefs at Pak Nai, which are now encrusted with oysters two years after being established.
They may be smoked, boiled, steamed, pan fried, grilled, or baked. The unique flavor of an oyster, which may be salty, sweet, buttery, copper, briny, or melon, heavily depends on where it was caught. Our newsletter hand-delivers the best bits to your inbox.

True oysters are important on both ecological and economic levels. In the marine ecosystem, oysters serve as keystone species fulfilling roles in both water filtration, and creating bottom substrate for other organisms on the oyster reef. In addition, they are also a source of high-quality protein for a range of wildlife, including many birds, and for human consumption. Oyster farming has a long history and can be traced back to the early Roman Empire in Europe , and the Han dynasty (206 BC-220 AD) in Asia .
