Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar: "Evolution in rapidly adapting populations"

Seminar | January 31 | 12-1 p.m. | 101 Barker Hall


Michael Desai, Harvard University

Department of Plant and Microbial Biology


Natural selection and other evolutionary forces lead to particular patterns of evolutionary dynamics, and they leave characteristic signatures on the genetic variation within populations. We use a combination of theory and experiments to study the dynamics and population genetics of natural selection in asexual populations such as microbes and viruses.
