By comparison of developmental processes and features across animal taxa, one can reconstruct ancestral states and gain a deeper understanding of how different developmental modes and body plans evolved. ANTP-class homeobox genes are an ideal starting point to study the diversification of animals due to their essential functions in developmental processes, genomic organisation, confinement to animals, and highly conserved domains, which permit relatively robust orthologue classification between species.
