Evolutionary Genomics and Proteomics is the first major review of developments in the rapidly advancing areas of genomics and proteomics, with particular emphasis on placing these fields in an evolutionary context. With a growing understanding of genes, their diversity and regulation, and how their products work together in networks of interacting elements, a new era of biology is emerging. The genome is coming to be seen not just as a collection of genes, but as a complex set of instructions for making a phenotype, written in digital form. The challenge for evolutionary biologists is to use this information to understand how phenotypic novelty, complexity, robustness, and evolvability emerge as well as how these forces sculpt the genome and to link genomic and phenotypic diversity within populations. Evolutionary Genomics and Proteomics highlights new research in all these areas with thirteen chapters from leading scientists on topics including systems biology, the origin of genes and lateral gene transfer, gene regulation and gene dispensability, proteome complexity, genomic immune systems, sex-biased genomic expression, sex chromosome evolution, gene and protein network evolution, adaptive genome evolution, and human evolutionary genomics. The chapters are richly illustrated and written for students and researchers in the life sciences.

Review:

I highly recommend this volume to anyone interested in the exciting new field of evolutionary population genomics. It is very nicely formatted with many attractive color graphs that schematically illustrate the text. The book will also be suitable as a teaching volume at the graduate level. --Nico M. van Straalen, The Quarterly Review of Biology

Evolutionary Genomics and Proteomics can truly be regarded as an opening salvo for a new phase in genomics (and all follow-up -omics), where the evolutionary approach will become key to the identification of the function of individual genes and gene networks. It will certainly be of great use as both a basic textbook and compilation of in-depth reviews for graduate students and molecular biologists that either enter the genomics field or would like to apply novel conceptional thinking in comparative genomics. --Evgeni Sokurenko, Microbe
