Dictyostelids: Evolution, Genomics and Cell Biology by Maria Romeralo,Sandra Baldauf,Ricardo Escalante

By Maria Romeralo,Sandra Baldauf,Ricardo Escalante

Since their discovery in 1869, the dictyostelids have attracted the eye of scientists in a wide selection of fields. This curiosity has stemmed from their atypical way of life and developmental homes, that have been formed via the evolutionary forces that generated multicellularity in the course of eukaryotic evolution. extra lately, the dictyostelids have received realization a result of extraordinary similarities came across on the genomic, mobile and biochemical degrees with human cells, which has propelled the species Dictyostelium discoideum to turn into a version method for biology and medication in lots of laboratories. This publication covers the newest advances in our wisdom of those striking organisms with issues spanning from their evolutionary heritage, ecology and variety to the hot discoveries relating to their mobile and molecular biology.
