The Dynamic Genome

A Darwinian Approach

Antonio Fontdevila

  • Provides a synthetic, readable account of some hotly debated evolutionary issues set in the context of our growing understanding of functional genomics
  • Analyses some of the most widely publicised anti-Darwinian theories, focusing them within a historical and conceptual framework, explaining why and how they exist, and providing the reader with putative solutions
  • Demonstrates how the emerging dynamism of the genome can continue to be linked with the fundamental process of natural selection
