New insights into the mechanisms of body plan evolution are derived from considerations of the consequences of change in developmental gene regulatory networks. Examples of crucial evidence underscore each major concept. The clear writing style explains regulatory causality without requiring a sophisticated background in descriptive developmental biology. This unique text supersedes anything currently available in the market. It is the only book in the market that is solely devoted to the genomic regulatory code for animal development.
It is written at a conceptual level, including many novel synthetic concepts that ultimately simplify understanding. It presents a comprehensive treatment of molecular control elements that determine the function of genes.
About this article
It provides a comparative treatment of development, based on principles rather than description of developmental processes. It considers the evolutionary processes in terms of the structural properties of gene regulatory networks and includes 42 full-color descriptive figures and diagrams.

Davidson does an excellent job of reducing the complexity of different developmental pathways and modes of embryonic development in diverse animal phyla. Davidson achieves a remarkable synthesis of key concepts in genomics, embryology, and evolutionary biology.
This is a milestone work that needs to be read by every biologist Davidson's book is tightly written with an impressive coverage of the field. Betrokkenen Auteur Eric H. Reviews Schrijf een review. Kies je bindwijze. Verkoop door bol.

In winkelwagen Op verlanglijstje. Transcriptomic analysis of shoot apices in GA-treated and control cucumber plants have provided evidences that GA regulation of sex determination takes place through both, ethylene —dependent and ethylene-independent pathways Zhang et al. The function and components of many GRNs are conserved in evolution based in the innovation, amplification and divergence theory Bergthorsson et al. Genome-wide analysis GWA is a potent tool to study gene families and determine how the different members evolved.
In this context, studies of the JmjC domain-containing proteins, involved in histone demethylation, provide insights into the evolution of this group of proteins after genome duplication in soybean Han et al. This, together with phylogenetic analysis enlightens the evolutionary history of the KNOX gene family Reyes-Rivera et al. Comparative analysis of functions in different plant systems has allowed the identification of similarities and differences among species that caused the establishment of similar functions.
