In this collectiona╠ž team of leading biologists demonstrates why the burgeoning field of conservation biology must continue to rely on the insights of population genetics if we to are preserve the diversity of living species
Evolution as computation : DIMACS workshop, Princeton, January 1999 by Laura F Landweber( Book )
13 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The study of the genetic basis for evolution has flourished in this century, as well as our understanding of the evolvability and programmability of biological systems. Genetic algorithms meanwhile grew out of the realization that a computer program could use the biologically-inspired processes of mutation, recombination, and selection to solve hard optimization problems. Genetic and evolutionary programming provide further approaches to a wide variety of computational problems. A synthesis of these experiences reveals fundamental insights into both the computational nature of biological evolution and processes of importance to computer science. Topics include biological models of nucleic acid information processing and genome evolution; molecules, cells, and metabolic circuits that compute logical relationships; the origin and evolution of the genetic code; and the interface with genetic algorithms, genetic and evolutionary programming. This research combines theory and experiments to understand the computations that take place in cells and the combinatorial processes that drive evolution at the molecular level

RNA-mediated epigenetic inheritance in oxytricha by Laura F Landweber( Visual )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"RNA, normally thought of as a conduit in gene expression, displays a novel mode of action inciliates, where RNA molecules provide both an organizing role in DNA rearrangements and a template that can transmit somatic substitutions to the next generation (Nowacki et al. 2008. Nature 451, 153-158). The opportunity for RNA-guided DNA repair is profound in Oxytricha, which destroys 95% of its germline genome through a process that severely fragments its chromosomes and then sorts and reorders the hundreds of thousands of tiny pieces remaining. Information for reordering comes from transiently-expressed maternal non-coding RNAs. A complete RNA cache of the maternal somatic genome may be available at a specific stage during development to provide a template for DNA rearrangement and to transmit heritable information."--Abstract
