While some current scientists assert that evo-devo is also a part of the modern synthesis, most agree it has so far played a very slight role Current thought and developments in biology book the overall synthesis. While most of Darwin's ideas are still very much present in the modern evolutionary synthesis, there are some fundamental differences now that more data and new disciplines have.

Ten years in preparation, this is a work of epic proportions, tracing the development of the major problems of biology from the earliest attempts to find order in the diversity of life, to modern.

], the relationships between bacteria, archaea and eukaryotes are not as clear-cut as once thought. Twenty years of comparative genomics have led to the realization that prokaryotic and eukaryotic genomes are evolutionary mosaics; the phylogenetic signals contained within them are complex, so complex that using genomic data to test competing hypotheses of cell evolution is extremely difficult.
