History[edit source]

Not to be conflated with Haken’s theory concerning thermodynamics nor Fuller’s studies of mathematical transitions, colonial research on “synergetics” is devoted to unlocking the secrets of epistatic mutations (those in which the effect of one gene depends on the presence of one or more other genes). Epistasis has a deep, and as yet not fully understood, impact on evolution and polygenetic inheritance. Synergistic epistasis is a double genetic mutation that has a more striking phenotype than the additive effects of the two single mutations. Through genetic manipulation of two genes, site-directed mutagenesis can accelerate evolution significantly, leading to significant differences in form and function of the offspring from its genetic two donors. In effect, synergetics can bring about biological transformations beyond point mutations, both stable and reproducible.
