Monosiga brevicollis is a choanoflagellate belonging to the Codonosigaceae family. Choanoflagellates are the closest known relatives of metazoans and are abundant in marine and freshwater environments throughout the world. They capture bacteria and detritus using actin-filled microvilli and thus have a critical role in oceanic carbon cycling and the microbial food web.

The 42Mb genome of Monosiga brevicollis contains approximately 9,200 predicted protein-coding genes, comparable in size to the genomes of filamentous fungi. The genes are intron-rich with 6.6 introns per gene compared with 7.7 for human genes.
