Theories - Origin of Life

... to be protective against cholera? This is a similar idea as the sickle-cell mutation. Systems biologists are increasingly recognising the robustness of cellular processes. Mutations (of all kinds) produce little phenotypic variation. If the mutation is serious enough the organism either ...

... in biological systems and to further confirmation of the possible identification of fundamental design principles of cellular control [e.g., robustness (5, 6), noise tolerance (7), programmed temporal order (8, 11), sign-sensitive dynamics (9, 10), ultrasensitivity (12), optimal performance ...

CANALIZATION vs DECANALIZATION

... for "decanalization" was very ambiguous and weak. Might I suggest the following definition: "Canalization is the phenotypic robustness, i.e. the ability of a population to produce the same phenotype, regardless of variability in its environment or genotype; decanalization ...

Recombination in RNA viruses,Ruzic,Kovac

... is an aptly named phylogenetic approach that initially produces a tree from a small window at one end of a sequence alignment and assesses its robustness using bootstrapping. The window is then incrementally shifted along the alignment and a new bootstrap tree is produced for each resulting ...
