Books Info:

Genes in Conflict free pdf Covering all species from yeast to humans, "Genes in Conflict" is the first book to tell the story of selfish genetic elements, those continually appearing stretches of DNA that act narrowly to advance their own replication at the expense of the larger organism. As Austin Burt and Robert Trivers show, these selfish genes are a universal feature of life with pervasive effects, including numerous counter-adaptations. Their spread has created a whole world of sociogenetic interactions within individuals, usually completely hidden from sight.
