Like Comment

50 years ago, Emile Zuckerkandl founded the Journal of Molecular Evolution as a new journal dedicated to the field of molecular evolution. To celebrate this, members of our editorial board were given the opportunity to pick a classic paper from the journal and write a perspectives piece describing the paper, the research it subsequently spawned, and future directions in the field. Ten such pieces were contributed by members of our editorial board and are available at: https://www.springer.com/journal/239/updates/18894136 together with a link to the original paper referenced. We hope you will enjoy these perspectives on the field.

There is much to celebrate! One of the classics chosen (JME 89, 165-171) described the clash on the pages of the Journal of Molecular Evolution (1995) between the neutralist ideas of Noboru Sueoka and the selectionist ideas of Donald Forsdyke. The latter has now issued an update in Genetica: https://rdcu.be/ci4UQ
