"Chemical and Biological Principles of Evolution"
Spring Semester, 2009
Purpose: This class
anchors the curriculum of the TSRI Predoctoral Training Program in
Molecular Evolution. We focus on the molecular mechanisms of biological
evolution and how these concepts are being implemented in the evolution
of chemical and biological function in the laboratory. The study and
creation of evolving systems has become a recognizable and distinct
discipline straddling chemistry, molecular biology, immunology, and
genetics. Speakers from TSRI and elsewhere will describe their work
in this context.
