function also arises in a modular way and not simply by accretion. The molecules are occasionally modified when copied, and the copies can subsequently accumulate variation and modified or new function. This process can be termed duplication with variation and, as we will see, is a particular but important aspect of Darwin's major principle of descent with modification.
