The fifth chapter of prof A . Wagner’s “Origins of Evolutionary Innovations” tries to answer to the question: “Under which common principles do metabolic networks, regulatory circuits, and sequence folds evolve?“. It also formalizes a framework for a theory of innovations, to study how innovative phenotypes can be found by evolution.
Together, this chapter is a wonderful recapitulation of the previous four. Enjoy!
This is probably the last or the second last session for this book club. I will be away in the Leipzig course for the following two weeks, and then I will also be busy on May. I will maybe make another slideshow on chapter 6 in April, but I can not commit to it.
