  • Crumbling Genomeby Alexey S. Kondrashov

    Wiley 2016; US$ 99.95

    Our genome consists of DNA molecules of the combined length over 3 billion nucleotides, which contains over 20,000 protein-coding genes, each encoding either one protein or a set of similar proteins - and these genes and proteins interact with each other, forming mind-boggling networks of mutual influences. A human body, which develops on the basis... more...

  • Adaptation in Metapopulationsby Michael J. Wade

    University of Chicago Press 2016; US$ 40.00

    All organisms live in clusters, but such fractured local populations, or demes, nonetheless maintain connectivity with one another by some amount of gene flow between them. Most such metapopulations occur naturally, like clusters of amphibians in vernal ponds or baboon troops spread across the African veldt. Others have been created as human activities... more...
