  • Genomic studies have shown that evolution can be based on clusters of genes that may be silenced and reactivated by regulator genes or promoter sequences. Thus, apparent phylogenetic homoplasy may actually represent a single complex developmental response to selection, involving many genes or gene clusters and one or more regulating sequences, and as such may be called multiplex homoiology. Evidence for such complex exaptions (pre-adaptions) in many organisms is discussed, and two features of… CONTINUE READING
