Evolution of evolvability in a developmental model

Evolution; International Journal of Organic Evolution

Nov 23, 2007

J Draghi, G P Wagner

Abstract

Evolvability, the ability of populations to adapt, can evolve through changes in the mechanisms determining genetic variation and in the processes of development. Here we construct and evolve a simple developmental model in which the pleiotropic effects of genes can evolve. We demonstra...read more

Microbes are microscopic organisms which may exist in a unicellular or colony form. Here is the latest research on their genetic makeup, their relationship with one another and the environment, and their evolution.
