A Probabilistic Model of the Genotype/Phenotype Relationship: Does Life Play the Dice?

1st Edition

Jean-Pierre Hugot
July 24, 2018

A Probabilistic Model of the Genotype/Phenotype Relationship provides a new hypothesis on the relationship between genotype and phenotype. The main idea of the book is that this relationship is probabilistic, in other words, the genotype does not fully explain the phenotype. This idea is developed...
