Synergistic selection in biology

Synergistic selection has been suggested to play an important role in the evolution of protein interaction networks, such as that of yeast. This means that a single new protein added to a network during its evolution is more likely to be filtered out as irrelevant. While an addition of several interacting new proteins are more likely to be preserved during evolution.
