A special issue of the Journal of Molecular Medicine on Evolutionary Medicine has ten articles of special interest

The editor, Konstantinos Voskarides, says in the overview “Evolutionary Medicine is a fast-growing research field providing biomedical scientists with valuable information on molecular and pathophysiological mechanisms of disease. This is the reason that Journal of Molecular Evolution has devoted this issue to Evolutionary Medicine. Nine detailed review papers are included in this issue, analyzing topics that are among the “hottest” subjects of Evolutionary Medicine. All information is up to date and highly valuable for scientists that would like to start their career or get updated on this field.”
