Beschreibung

Conceived for both computer scientists and biologists alike, this collection of 22 essays highlights the important new role that computers play in developmental biology research. Essays show how through computer modeling, researchers gain further insight into developmental processes. Featured essays also cover their use in designing computer algorithms to tackle computer science problems in areas like neural network design, robot control, evolvable hardware, and more. Peter Bentley, noted for his prolific research on evolutionary computation, and Sanjeev Kumar head up a respected team to guide readers through these very complex and fascinating disciplines. It covers both developmental biology and computational development - the only book of its kind! It provides introductory material and more detailed information on both disciplines. It includes contributions from Richard Dawkins, Lewis Wolpert, Ian Stewart, and many other experts.

Pressestimmen

"The book has all the materials--case studies from the seashore, the growing flower-garden, and desert-striding camels; background engineering and developmental genetics; as well as conceptual and inspirational pieces--to equip the biologists and computer scientists who will take the subject forward." -Mark Ridley, Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, UK
