Summary
Since Dawkins popularized the notion of the selfish gene, the question of how these selfish genes work together to construct an organism remained a mystery. Now, standing atop a wealth of new research, Itai Yanai and Martin Lercher pioneers in the field of systems biology provide a vision of how genes cooperate and compete in the struggle for life."
Summary
Two system biologists update the theory by Richard Dawkins that suggested that the singular, motivating drive of a gene was to survive, by showing that genomes are made of groups of genes that form alliances and rivalries and function like human societies
