Focus sull'evo-devo curato dalla rivista Nature Reviews Genetics

Il dossier, liberamente disponibile ai lettori registrati presso l'editore Nature Publishing Group, affronta in quattro saggi gli ultimi sviluppi della biologia dello sviluppo tentando di fondare una nuova Sintesi Moderna della genetica ed evoluzione.

I saggi, pubblicati nell'ultimo fascicolo della rivista Nature Reviews Genetics, sono i seguenti:
Evo–devo: extending the evolutionary synthesis
Gerd B. Müller
Written in stone: fossils, genes and evo–devo
Rudolf A. Raff
Evolutionary developmental biology and genomics
Cristian Cañestro, Hayato Yokoi & John H. Postlethwait
The road to modularity
Günter P. Wagner, Mihaela Pavlicev & James M. Cheverud

Paolo Coccia
