Detecting and Explaining Innovations in Science with Big-Data Computational Methods and Modeling

In this paper we develop a conceptual framework for analyzing the history scientific innovations that combines an extended evolution theory with network analysis and signal detection and agent based modeling applied to a number of case studies in the history of modern biomedical research. These formal techniques are embedded within a conceptual framework that analyzes evolutionary processes as transformations of extended regulatory network structures, and is designed to apply to a whole range of phenomena, from genome and biological to cultural and technological evolution.
