A phenotypic view of evolution Evolution in Structured Populations

Why genotypes are not just the sum of the genes

I want to continue with my theme that the patterning node is not just genotype, and that the genotype is not just genes.  In particular, I want to talk about gene interaction, and why the genotype is not the sum of the genes.  This is an area in which I am an active researcher (in …
