https://www.danforthcenter.org/news-media/in-the-news/in-the-news-item/(livescience)-algae-may-hold-key-to-origin-of-the-sexes
A tiny, unassuming little alga may hold the secret to how the sexes evolved.
(LiveScience) Algae May Hold Key to Origin of the Sexes, by Tia Ghose, evolved. A single gene that determines male or female sex in multicellular algae evolved from, separately in many different life forms, from plants to animals to algae. Many scientists thought the sexes, or changed," Umen said. Sex change But the multicellular algae Volvox carteri evolved sexes from, differ between plus and minus mating-type algae. That's a far cry from what occurs in multicellular
Discovery in Algae Reveals Evolutionary Origin of Sexes

A discovery, by Center scientist, Jim Umen, Ph.D., in the multicellular green alga, Volvox carteri, has revealed the origin of male and female sexes, showing how they evolved from a more primitive mating system in a unicellular relative.
Discovery in Algae Reveals Evolutionary Origin of Sexes, ST. LOUIS, MO – JULY 14, 2014, the two species of algae are related, the Chlamydomonas MID gene was unable to substitute for Volvox, algae shows that these two forms of reproduction share a common genetic origin, and hint, . The identification of a conserved regulatory gene that controls sex and mating in the algae may lead to clues about how sex is controlled in other related groups of algae that are used for biotechnological
