The Genetic Gods: Evolution and Belief in Human Affairs

John Avise provides a evaluate of up to date molecular biology that's fairly obtainable to the 'lay' reader with a few past publicity to the overall quarter of evolutionary-genetics. The discussions are a little philosophically charged (i. e. they don't stay unavoidably technical) and comment on social, emotional, and theological matters too.

Natural Genetic Engineering and Natural Genome Editing (Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences)

The new literature on complete genome sequences offers considerable proof for the motion of ordinary genetic engineering in evolution. Discoveries approximately ordinary genetic engineering have coincided with swift growth in our figuring out of epigenetic regulate and RNA-directed chromatin formation. unique consciousness has to be paid to the position of viruses and comparable so-called "parasitic" parts within the beginning of genome formatting and normal genetic engineering functions specially the function of non-random genetic swap operators within the creation of complicated evolutionary innovations.

Evolution and Genetics of Populations. Volume 4: Variability within and among natural populations

"Wright's perspectives approximately inhabitants genetics and evolution are so primary and so entire that each severe scholar needs to research those books firsthand. . . . ebook of this treatise is an enormous occasion in evolutionary biology. "-Daniel L. Hartl, BioScience

A first estimate of the in vivo rate at which 5mC is deaminated and fixed as thymidine was arrived at by extrapolation from in vitro data (Cooper and Krawczak, 1989). To this end, the deamination rate of 5mC as measured under laboratory conditions in single stranded DNA, was modified so as to be consistent with the observed spectrum of point mutations found to have caused human genetic disease. 66 × 10–16sec–1 was consistent with the rate calculated from the evolutionary pattern of CpG substitution exhibited by β-globin gene and pseudogene sequences in human, chimpanzee and macaque (Cooper and Krawczak, 1989).

The TATA, SP1, and CCAAT boxes bind transcription factors that are involved in constitutive transcription whilst the glucocorticoid response element (GRE), metal response element (MRE), heat shock element (HSE), and the AP1 and AP2 sites bind factors involved in the induction of gene expression in response to specific stimuli.

This theory might predict antagonistic coevolution between maternally and paternally derived genes for the control of fetal growth. However, contrary to the expectations of the conflict hypothesis, the rate of evolution of imprinted genes is not significantly different from that exhibited by non-imprinted genes encoding receptors (McVean and Hurst, 1997). , 1993). , 1997). , 1996; Haig, 1996). Whether this is an adaptation to allow these genes to be transcribed rapidly or whether it is merely a property of the chromosomal region in question is however unknown.
