Contents: Toward a postmodern synthesis of evolutionary biology --
The fundamentals of evolution : Darwin and modern synthesis --
From modern synthesis to evolutionary genomics : multiple processes and patterns of evolution --
Comparative genomics : evolving genomescapes --
Genomics, systems biology, and universals of evolution : genome evolution as a phenomenon of statistical physics --
The web genomics of the prokaryotic world : vertical and horizontal flows of genes, the mobilome, and the dynamic pangenomes --
The phylogenetic forest and the quest for the elusive Tree of Life in the age of genomics --
The origins of eukaryotes : endosymbiosis, the strange story of introns, and the ultimate importance of unique events in evolution --
The non-adaptive null hypothesis of genome evolution and origins of biological complexity --
The Darwinian, Lamarckian, and Wrightean modalities of evolution, robustness, evolvability, and the creative role of noise in evolution --
The virus world and its evolution --
The last universal common ancestor, the origin of cells, and the primordial gene pool --
Origin of life : the emergence of translation, replication, metabolism, and membranes --
the biological, geochemical, and cosmological perspectives --
The postmodern state of evolutionary biology --
Appendix A. Postmodernist philosophy, metanarratives, and the nature and goals of the scientific endeavor --
Appendix B. Evolution of the cosmos and life : eternal inflation, "many worlds in one," anthropic selection, and a rough estimate of the probability of the origin of life.
Responsibility: Eugene V. Koonin.
