Ada K. Hagan, Nicholas A. Lesniak, Marcy J. Balunas, Lucas Bishop, William L. Close, Matthew D. Doherty, Amanda G. Elmore, Kaitlin J. Flynn, Geoffrey D. Hannigan, Charlie C. Koumpouras, Matthew L. Jenior, Ariangela J. Kozik (+9 others)
2020 PLoS Computational Biology  
AKH led a lab discussion of Code Clubs to identify the key concepts presented, which were supplemented by contributions from NAL. The order of other coauthors is listed alphabetically.  ...  Acknowledgments All coauthors have been participants in the Code Clubs run as part of PDS's lab meetings. They have had a critical role in shaping the evolution of the sessions.  ...  As the rules describe, this model can easily be adapted to groups of non-biologists or those with stronger backgrounds in computer science.  ...

The network as knowledge: generative rules and the emergence of structure

Bruce Kogut
2000 Strategic Management Journal  
Whereas the value of firm-level capabilities is coincidental with the firm as the unit of accrual, ownership claims to the value of coordination in a network pit firms potentially in opposition with one  ...  I propose that part of the value of the firm derives from its participation in a network that emerges from the operation of generative rules that instruct the decision to cooperate.  ...  I would like to thank Gordon Walker for many helpful discussions, Udo Zander who contributed substantially to parts of this paper, and the anonymous reviewers.  ...

How could increased skills and ever more refined strategies take hold and evolve?  ...
