Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In the first part of the lecture the theoretical foundations, scientific questions, and research domains of EvoDevo will be presented, and the general relation between genetic and phenotypic evolution will be discussed. Iin the second part specific examples of recent experimental approaches to fundamental questions in EvoDevo will be
presented: conservation and diversification of molecular systems and developmental processes in axis evolution, evolution of new limb and appendage structures, changes in cis-regulation and protein-coding parts, etc.
