The Synthesis and Evolution of a Supermodel, Science
Excerpts: Synthesis is the merging of disparate sources of knowledge to create a stronger, more compelling whole. In the biological sciences, barriers to synthesis-(...)--have increased over the past few decades. Developmentalists dissect their favorite ecologically irrelevant models with exquisite detail, while evolutionists tap away at hundreds of fascinating species with genetically toothless tools. Organismal biologists can take great solace in a report (...) that shows how genomics can be used to buck this trend and lead us to new insights into fundamental evolutionary problems.
