  • Biologists have debated the existence of altruistic genes that recognize and aid copies of themselves. However, demonstrating such "green-beard" genes in biological systems has proved difficult. In their Perspective, [Crespi and Springer][1] describe an elegant set of experiments ([Queller][2] et al .) that identify a green-beard gene encoding a homophilic adhesion protein in the slime mold Dictyostelium.
