Michael Lynch, Ph.D., Director, Biodesign Center for Mechanisms of Evolution

Evolution is a population-level process, whereas the building blocks out of which evolutionary changes are assembled and derived at the molecular and cellular levels. While much of evolutionary biology is focused on why certain phenotypes evolve, the goal is to understand the mechanisms of evolutionary change. To accomplish this task, we are focused on the integration of population-genetic theory with empirical work from molecular and cell biology, biophysics, and biochemistry.
