THE PARALLEL EVOLUTION: APPLIED BIOLOGY IN VIDEO GAMES

Ferran González, Erik Aostri



 

PARALLEL EVOLUTION: Applied Biology in Video Games is written by Erik Aostri, a biochemist and molecular biologist, as well as a video game lover. This new volume is a book about how biological science ends up permeating culture, especially incorporating itself into video games.


Divided the book into six disciplines in the field of biology : zoology, physiology, genetics, microbiology and parasitology, biotechnology, and astrobiology, Aostri explains through certain video games such as Pokémon , Resident Evil or Cyberpunk 2077, scientific concepts such as metamorphosis and ecosystems, viruses and pandemics or what is the functioning of neurons. That is, a very important essay on what science (especially bioscience ) is behind many video games that we know.
