Covers pathways of stress-induced mutagenesis in all systems
Serves a wide audience
Examines changed ideas about mutation and evolution
The discoveries of stress-induced mutation and epigenetic inheritance have challenged the claim of independence between the evolutionary forces of mutation and selection. In “Stress-Induced Mutagenesis”, leading experts provide the key evidence for and the molecular details of stress-induced genetic and epigenetic mutation, integrating cross-disciplinary observations from a number of species and biological systems, including human. The observations have vast implications for evolutionary biology but also for human medicine. A comprehensive understanding of stress-induced mutagenesis and the processes underlying evolvability, will enable gains in the treatment and management of cancer, as well as other human disorders that result from damaged or unstable genomes.
