Evolution In Action: Watching New Species Evolve In The Lab

The Wet Lab is hosting a lecture by Justin Meyer, PhD, Assistant Professor in the Division of Biological Sciences at UCSD. The lecture will be held at the San Diego Central Library on Thursday, November 16, from 6:30 – 7:30pm.

Many people might envision an evolutionary biologist as a bearded Victorian scientist who analyzes dusty fossils and museum collections. The field of evolutionary biology has modernized over the decades and now many researchers use technology to actually watch evolution in action. I will discuss compelling results from the new field of experimental evolution including one from my lab where we watched new species of microbes evolve in test tubes.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
