The new theories of evolution

From The Daily Telegraph 17/7/2007;

"Darwin's ideas are being used by scientists to develop new drugs and plan phone networks, says Steve Jones."

"A whole group of intriguing conference titles turns on the Biblical injunction to Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise.

Much wisdom has emerged from studying those busy beings."

"Evolution in the computer may soon overcome evolution in the real world, as bacteria and their digital equivalents use mutation and natural selection to defeat the challenges that human ingenuity throws at them.
That should prove the power of Darwin's theory to even the most hardened sceptic."
