    DescriptionThe availability of genomic blueprints for hundreds of species has led to a transformation in biology, encouraging the proliferation of adaptive arguments for the evolution of genomic features, yet often sacrificing simpler, more compelling explanations. This textbook explains why the details matter and presents an explanatory framework for how the architectural diversity of eukarotic genomes and genes came to arise. Presented in non-technical fashion, it is compatible for use in an advanced Genetics course and as a professional reference.

    Review quote
    '...the book is likely to create fruitful debates, and be valuable in getting assumptions clear, and helping create a focus on the most important issues, and thus contribute to beginning to understand many aspects of genome evolution.' - Deborah Charlesworth, Genetical Research
