Developmental Evolution in Biomedical Research

While there is a growing awareness that evolutionary biology has a unique role to play in medical research, much of the contributions from devolutionary biology have been based on population genetics and the ecology and evolution of infectious agents. With the maturation of the field of developmental evolution research it is increasingly dealing with topics relevant to medical research as well. These are the biology of malformations, cancer biology, the biology and pathology of reproduction, to name a few. Devo-evo has traditionally a stronger mechanistic focus than other parts of evolutionary biology, which makes interactions with molecular biomedical research particularly promising.

JEZ-B is encouraging submissions that exemplify devo-evo contributions to biomedical research. Submissions for a Special Issue on biomedical devo-evo will be considered until July 31st 2016.
