Lecture by Thomas Lenormand RI '18

Free and open to the public.


As a Radcliffe fellow, Thomas Lenormand is working on the evolution of gene expression. For theoretical and historical reasons, modern evolutionary theory has little incorporated the detailed mechanisms of gene regulation. Gene expression regulation, however, is now central to most fields of biology. He plans to bridge this interdisciplinary gap and set the foundation of a comprehensive evolutionary theory of gene regulation evolution.
