End: Jan 17, 2018 01:00 PM
Title: Biodiversity genomics: from plant speciation to physiological adaptation in fish
Speaker: Professor Vincent Savolainen - Department of Life Sciences, Imperial College London (research profile)
Host: Professor Andrew Pomiankowski (email)
Venue: Medawar Watson LT (map)
Abstract: Genomes, transcriptomes, and microbiomes are now readily accessible to biologists, helping them to answer century-old questions in ecology and evolution. The seminar will illustrate the use of such data in my lab, focusing on sympatric speciation in island palms but also presenting results on the evolution of endothermy in sharks and tunas.
