Sam Sinai: Coding “The Selfish Gene”

Sam Sinai

Sam Sinai is a theoretical biologist who spends much of his time developing computational models. His early inspiration came from the Richard Dawkins book The Selfish Gene. The ideas Dawkins presents are compelling, but do not come with proofs, or convincing sets of numbers. Selfish Gene is largely a thought experiment that laid out a framework for evolution, and Sam’s research elaborates on that framework with mathematical and computational evidence.
