A Moore's Law for Evolution?
Basically, yeah. A team under Michael Deem, who is a professor of both physics and biochemistry, has developed a mathematical model for evolution showing just how, and why, it seems to proceed faster-and-faster, faster-and-faster, just as is the case with Moore's Law.
The key is what Deem calls Horizontal Gene Transfer (HGT), which happens when DNA from one species is transferred into another by nature (as opposed to boffins). Past models have looked only at sudden point mutations or recombination, as happens in sexual reproduction.
Deem's model is the best explanation for how drug-resistant bacteria come about.
