Unfortunately, random change alone could not have produced life as we know it – the maths dont add up, according to cutting-edge research by Andreas Wagner in the revolutionary field of computational biology.In the last decade, Wagner has detected the biological networks guiding the creation of innovation. His investigations of the genes of everything from bacteria to humans is rewriting our understanding of how exactly evolution works and providing insights into the origins of creativity, with lessons that can be applied far beyond genomes.In The Arrival of the Fittest, Wagner delivers a breathtaking new look at our origins, from the genes up.
