Evolution since Coding : Cradles, Halos, Barrels, and Wings Paperback / softback
Evolution since Coding: Cradles, Halos, Barrels, and Wings describes genesis of metabolism, transcription, translation, cell structure, eukaryotic complexity, LUCA (the last universal common (cellular) ancestor), the great divergence of archaea and bacteria, LECA (the last eukaryotic common ancestor), extinction, and cancer in very simple ways.
The work (almost) "synthesizes life from scratch" (since coding) and describes the tools for readers to check the author's work.
As a result, readers understand living systems and their evolution in a conceptual way and are empowered to utilize powerful but accessible tools in computer-based biology. The work serves as foundational reading for a variety of researchers, academics, and students in life sciences, for example in evolution/evolutionary biology, biochemistry, genetics/molecular genetics, molecular biology, cell biology, and microbiology, as well as disciplines beyond biological science.
Its approachable style makes the book accessible for introductory students and educated laypersons.
Evolution since Coding is suitable to supplement college courses that mix computers, evolution, and biology from freshman to senior level.
