Darwinian Evolution of Prions

Here is an original article describing the phenomenon of prion evolution in Science magazine. It would seem that this is the first example of evolution that is distinct from genetics. I haven't read the article in detail but cjdblogger has a decent summary.

The summary link doesn't work, but I dolike the sound of a Department of Infectology.
