🧬 That’s a wrap! Catch up on the full series of Genomics Lite webinars

That’s it for the Genomics Lite: Biodiversity & Evolution sessions! This June and July, Genomics Lite and the people involved in the Darwin Tree of Life project have given us all a great insight into genomics, biodiversity, and evolution. Throughout the series, the teams have: Looked at how genomics can aid our understanding of biodiversity and evolution. Discussed and compared methods and challenges in sequencing the genomes of old and new samples. Examined how humans have affected the evolution of malaria and mosquitos. Explored different careers and routes into the biodiversity and evolution fields. Even though the series has finished, you can continue learning with the Genomic Lite resources: Discover how scientists have been able to better understand the history of human evolution and whether humans are still evolving by studying the human genome. Find out more about different types of evolution and what natural selection in action looks like. … Continue reading

Tune in: The Genomics Lite webinars start tonight!

You’re invited to attend a series of live webinars this month, all about genomics, biodiversity, and the Darwin Tree of Life project! Each Thursday at 4.30pm, researchers from the Darwin Tree of Life project will explore a different field in biology on Genomics Lite. Go beyond Schools @ Darwin Tree of Life; put your questions to the experts and find out more about how genomics research contributes to understanding in the field. The first event is on Thursday 17 June, 4.30pm-5.30pm. Reserve your place ❯ In the first session, you can hear about cutting-edge research and put questions to Dr Marcela Uliano-Silva, a bioinformatician working at the Wellcome Sanger Institute. She’ll be exploring how studying and comparing organisms of different species gives us an insight into their evolution. This series runs each week until Thursday 8 July, with a new topic each week. See what future Genomics Lite talks will … Continue reading
