Continued Discussion on Emerging Area of Research: Real-Time Evolution

Thursday, April 15 2010 at 3:00 PM


Members of the University community are invited to take part in a continued discussion about one of the institution’s signature research areas: real-time evolution on Thursday, April 15, from 3:00-4:00 p.m., in the Idaho Commons Aurora Room. The session is open to members of the University community with an interest in developing this important research and education effort.

Led by Larry Forney, this forum will focus on changes to living systems that occur in real time that may threaten our way of life on many fronts from emerging diseases and parasites to natural selection of agricultural pests. By understanding these evolutionary processes, we can tip the balance in our favor, and take steps necessary to control and cure some of the most prevalent diseases facing our citizens.. This emerging area requires expertise from nearly all academic units on campus.
