CBR Blog Updated – Discussing Theoretical Models for Evolution

West Lebanon, NH 6|23|2010 What kinds of mechanisms exist to allow for just enough change – while preserving necessary components and processes – to allow a species to survive, adapt and evolve? Yesterday afternoon, Dr. Robert Gross posted a new entry in his Computational Biology Reflections blog discussing recent papers that focus on sorting out […]

Evolution, Conservation, Change, Robustness, Complexity and Degeneracy

For species to be successful and adapt to an ever changing environment, they must strike a delicate balance between allowing for some DNA alterations, while at the same time preserving the key developmental processes encoded in their unique genomes. This poses a problem, as even small changes in any given gene might lead to deleterious […]
