Carnival of Evolution #21 has landed

The superstar edition of CoE is up on Mauka to Makai.

It's got eight posts on blogs nominated for the Research Blogging Awards, plus two posts by science writer Carl Zimmer (who has a new textbook out on evolution, which I just won a copy of at a webinar with Carl and Chris Mooney). Loaves of super plus good stuff of evolution this time, too. Unmissable, even.

For example, this post on Adaptive Complexity about a brand new paper in Nature documenting the very first case of selection for whole gene networks. In yeast. Gotta love yeast. Fascinating paper, if you're into the more theoretical aspects of evolution. (Strictly speaking, this study is about Saccharomyces kudriavzevii, rather than the sugary fungus for beer, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, whose exquisite purpose in life is pictured here on the left ←.)
