The Tangled Tree: A Radical New History of Life

By David Quammen

 The Tangled Tree explores how the molecular study of evolution through the sequencing of DNA hasled to the surprising discovery of horizontal gene transfer—a process by which genes move between different species. As it turns out, the tree of life is more twisted than we could have imagined—we now know that roughly 80% of the human genome arrived via horizontal gene transfer in the form of viral infection. This fascinating and well-informed book explains this complex process and its role in past and future evolution.

The Tangled Tree, paperback, Simon & Schuster, 480 pages, 6˝x 9˝
