In this module we will explore the grand topic of evolution from various angles, in a symposium format.
We have invited the evolution devotees among EMBL faculty to introduce some basic concept of evolution and to give a lecture about their favourite evolutionary topic. To broaden the coverage of evolutionary topics, we have also invited some renowned external speakers. This way, we are able to teach and discuss various topics including:
- Theory of evolution
- Organismal evolution: The history of life from the very beginnings to animals and plants
- Molecular evolution on gene and protein level
- The evolution of cell types
- The evolution of gene regulatory networks
In a discussion format you will be exposed to current research and controversies in evolution.
