Test Tube Yeast Evolve Multicellularity

Read about at Scientific American. After multicellularity evolved, it says that: "The researchers also found evidence of rudimentary division of labor, which is an essential characteristic for more complex multicellular life forms. In a human, for example, some cells may differentiate into blood cells, others may differentiate into immune cells, but only select egg or sperm cells help form the next generation."
