Project Title: Unravelling the Principles of Genetic Evolution

Building an Extended Synthesis of evolution requires incorporation of development into the Modern Synthesis. This requires knowledge of the factors that affect the translation of mutation into phenotypic variation. Central to the translation process is the complex network of functional and regulatory connectivities that define the genotype-to-phenotype map. Theory predicts that this network of genetic interactions ¿ the totality of development ¿ constrains and channels evolution; restricts the pathways it takes and ¿ by imposing limits to phenotype space ¿ defines the rules by which it operates. The work outlined in this proposal uses a well-established and uniquely powerful experimental system to test the hypothesis that evolution proceeds via `pathways of least resistance¿, that is, via those pathways that have the greatest capacity to translate mutation into phenotypic variation. Using a combination of genetics, genomics and mathematics, this proposal will generate insight into the workings of evolution and the rules underpinning genetic evolution.

Project Title: The Evolution of Multicellularity

The evolution of multicellular life from unicellular organisms is one of the most significant evolutionary events in the history of life. Multicellularity brought with it the division of labour, development and a wealth of plant and animal forms. In metazoans, such as humans, lower level entities (cells) have given up their ability to reproduce as independent units and instead replicate exclusively as part of the larger whole. Explaining how this happened is a challenge of major proportion. We focus on a central and largely unrecognized paradox, that is, how the first groups evolve by natural selection, given that the first groups are seemingly unable to participate in the process of evolution by natural selection, because they are unable to leave offspring. We suggest a novel and plausible solution to this catch-22 and outline a series of experiments by which the central thesis can be tested. This work stands to change the way we think about some of the deepest problems in biology: it has implications for the origins of the soma / germ-line distinction, the origins of development and self-policing systems ¿ even the origins and development of cancer.
