Genomics Lite: How have humans affected the evolution of malaria?

This Thursday, Genomics Lite is back!

Genomics Lite is a webinar series running until 8 July. Each Thursday, scientists and researchers explore how genomics techniques and knowledge can be used in the fields of biodiversity and evolution.

In Session 3, postdoctoral research fellow Petra Korlevic is exploring the history of malaria, and discussing the question: How have humans affected the evolution of malaria and mosquitoes?

Session 3 takes place on 1 July from 4.30pm to 5.30pm. Register here ❯

Petra works at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory’s European Bioinformatics Institute, or EMBL-EDI for short. Her work sequencing a genus of the mosquito is contributing to the Darwin Tree of Life project.

Attending Genomics Lite will give you further insight into genomics, biodiversity, and evolution. Put your questions to the experts and find out more about how genomics research contributes to understanding in the field.

Broaden your biology knowledge, get the most out of your time with Schools @ Darwin Tree of Life, and it might even help if you’re undertaking an EPQ.

Students who attend 2 or more sessions live are eligible for an attendance certificate. See what future Genomics Lite talks will be about ❯
