Illuminating biology: An evolutionary perspective
Date:10/7/2008

On 16-17 October 2008, the American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS) and the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent) will convene a special symposium and workshop for educators at the National Association of Biology Teachers (NABT) conference in Memphis, TN. The special symposium, which has become a successful part of each year's NABT conference, provides classroom teachers with an opportunity to hear directly from internationally recognized evolutionary biology scholars to obtain information about current evolutionary biology research that can be used in the classroom to bring science alive and make it particularly relevant to students.

The theme for the 2008 symposium is Illuminating Biology: An Evolutionary Perspective. This year's symposium focuses on the benefits of applying evolutionary theory in biological sub-disciplines where evolutionary concepts have not traditionally played a prominent role. The four speakers will provide examples of successful evolutionary-based research in biochemistry, developmental biology, molecular biology, and neurobiology. A workshop will be held the day after the symposium to provide educators with tools to bring this message back to their students.
