The chemical analysis of bacteria-induced morphogenesis of marine microeukaryotes and invertebrates is of fundamental importance and provides insight into metazoan evolution and the origins of morphological complexity. In only few cases the morphogenesis-inducing bacteria could be characterized and the responsible signalling molecules identified. Using defined model systems of cross-kingdom interactions is essential to dissect the molecular mechanisms and chemical signals involved.
