Free articles on the genomics of adaptation

The Proceedings of the Royal Society (B) has a special issue on the genomics of adaptation that it’s making available for free to everyone. You can see the contents here; they include these articles, which can be accessed directly from my links.

    This is good!

    Scientists need to be paid (and paid well), but that payment shouldn’t come in a way that inherently restricts access to the fruits of their labors. Publishing and accessing published works should be as close to universally free as humanly possible.

    Great. I’m doing a free online (Coursera) course on genetics and evolution (Do it if you are interested in evolution. So far, it’s been amazing). Adaptation forms part of the last few weeks of lectures so they’ll come in handy.

    Cheers for this mate.
