Gordon Research Seminar — Molecular Mechanisms in Evolution

8th June 2019   -   9th June 2019
Stonehill College, Easton, MA, United States


The Gordon Research Seminar on Molecular Mechanisms in Evolution is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas. Evolution is foundational to our understanding of biology. This GRS seeks to overcome traditional disciplinary divides by bringing together junior scientists from a wide array of fields who share common goals: uncovering molecular mechanisms that drive evolution and/or using evolution and natural variation to better understand molecular processes. Topics will include the generation of variation (genetic, epigenetic, and phenotypic), inheritance, selection, and more across a broad range of model and non-model systems. This fusion of perspectives will improve our understanding of basic biology and greatly impact how we battle evolutionary challenges like cancer, aging, infectious disease, and resistance to antimicrobials, chemotherapies, pesticides, and herbicides.
