9780122053511: Genomic Regulatory Systems: In Development and Evolution

The interaction between biology and evolution has been the subject of great interest in recent years. Because evolution is such a highly debated topic, a biologically oriented discussion will appeal not only to scientists and biologists but also to the interested lay person. This topic will always be a subject of controversy and therefore any breaking information regarding it is of great interest.
The author is a recognized expert in the field of developmental biology and has been instrumental in elucidating the relationship between biology and evolution. The study of evolution is of interest to many different kinds of people and Genomic Regulatory Systems: In Development and Evolution is written at a level that is very easy to read and understand even for the nonscientist.

From the Back Cover:

Genomic Regulatory Systems is about the gene regulatory programs built into the DNA of every animal. Such programs control the process of development, and changes in their organization are the underlying cause of animal evolution.
The book takes a "genome's eye" view of the mechanism of spatial gene regulation and of developmental processes ranging from simple forms of embryogenesis to elegant mechanisms of pattern formation. Throughout, discussions of development and evolution are intertwined. The text takes an in-depth look at how the hardwired control systems of the genome work and offers an explanation for evolutionary change in animal body plans.
Eric H. Davidson is a major contributor to the field of developmental biology and has long been interested in the relationship between development and evolution. Genomic Regulatory Systems is authoritative but easy-to-read and will appeal to professionals and readers from a wide variety of scientific backgrounds.
