To understand the evolution of species it appears that we will need to know the principal sources and kinds of genomic variation and the mechanisms or systems through which genomic variation affects genes, their expression and the phenotype. In addition we will need to know the nature of the populations that give rise to new species and the way in which the selective forces act through the behavior and death of individuals. What we cannot guess at this time is how much more we will also need to learn about the genome and as yet unexpected processes.
