Natural Genetic Engineering and Natural Genome Editing Paperback
Edited by Gunther Witzany
Part of the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences series
The recent literature on whole genome sequences provides abundantevidence for the action of natural genetic engineering inevolution.
Discoveries about natural genetic engineering havecoincided with rapid progress in our understanding of epigeneticcontrol and RNA-directed chromatin formation.
Special attentionneeds to be paid to the role of viruses and related so-called"parasitic" elements in the origin of genome formatting and naturalgenetic engineering capabilities especially the role of non-randomgenetic change operators in the production of complex evolutionaryinventions.
These Proceedings of the Symposium NaturalGenetic Engineering and Natural Genome Editing (3-6 July2008, Salzburg, Austria) assemble scientists working on genomeorganization, genome restructuring, genome formatting and virusresearch to discuss how to integrate these discoveries into thebasic understanding of evolution, development and disease.
