This book seeks to explore the biological phenomena around genomic regulatory systems which control and shape animal development processes, and which determine the nature of evolutionary processes that affect body plan. Unifying and simplifying the largely phenomenological descriptions of development and evolution by focusing on the causality in these processes, Davidson and Peter provide a much more comprehensive method of considering genomic control across diverse biological processes. The work therefore functions as an explanatory framework for much broader biological considerations.
A continuation of the themes found in the authors Regulatory Genome (2006), this book will be essential for graduate researchers in genomics, systems biology and molecular biology seeking to understand deep biological processes which regulate the structure of animals during development.
