Evolutionary Systems Biology

Editors: Soyer, Orkun S. (Ed.)

  • Highlights the diverse array of methodologies and approaches employed in evolutionary systems biology
  • This book tries to decipher “evolutionary design principles” and the origins of systems level properties in biology, such as modularity, robustness, and network connectivity
  • Includes comparative (genomics) analyses that aim to decipher diversity in specific molecular systems

About this book

The book aims to introduce the reader to the emerging field of Evolutionary Systems Biology, which approaches classical systems biology questions within an evolutionary framework. An evolutionary approach might allow understanding the significance of observed diversity, uncover “evolutionary design principles” and extend predictions made in model organisms to others. In addition, evolutionary systems biology can generate new insights into the adaptive landscape by combining molecular systems biology models and evolutionary simulations. This insight can enable the development of more detailed mechanistic evolutionary hypotheses.
