Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The seminar focuses on a particular topic each semester and aims to illuminate it using a series of papers, including classical seminal papers that have set the stage as well as recent developments. In the WS, we will focus on "evolvability," the genetic and developmental properties that enable organisms to evolve.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Each student gives a seminar on one of the papers from the list. Reading of all papers is however required in order to participate in the discussion. Discussion and presentation are in English.
