AIBS to cohost symposium on evolution, disease and human health
Date:9/18/2007

The American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS), in conjunction with the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center, will host the fourth annual symposium on evolution on December 1, 2007, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia. The symposium, titled Evolution: Applications in Human Health and Populations, is part of the 2007 Professional Development Conference sponsored by the National Association of Biology Teachers.

The aim of the symposium is to familiarize biology teachers with current research on evolutions role in disease, medicine, and human health, and to explore the ethical questions attendant to that role.

The following eminent scientists will make presentations:

  • Gregory Wray, director of the Institute for Genome Sciences and Policy at Duke University, will give a presentation titled Genomic Perspectives on the Evolution of Human Health and Disease. Wray has a long-standing interest in the evolution of developmental mechanisms. Through his research, he has addressed the evolution of life history modes and larvae in echinoderms, the evolution of embryonic patterning mechanisms in metazoans, the timing of the metazoan radiation, and the role of regulatory gene expression in testing hypotheses of anatomical homology. His current projects focus on the evolution of developmental gene networks and mechanisms of transcriptional regulation. These projects use a variety of approaches and organisms to ask questions about the role that developmental processes play in the evolution of the genotype-phenotype relationship.
  • Carlos Bustamante, assistant professor of Biological Statistics and Computational Biology at Cornell University, will give a presentation titled Sign, Sign, Everywhere a Sign: Interpreting Evident for Recent Natural Selection on the Human Genome. Bustamantes work focuses on developing statistical methods for inference in population and comparative genomics. He is particularl
