University of Nottingham
The course studies the genetic variation that exists in wild populations, and the forces (selection; mutation; genetic drift) that shape this variation. Particular interests involve the molecular genetic variation of humans and their viruses, and variation in wild populations of molluscs, foraminiferans and drosophila. Projects include studies on molecular evolution and phylogenetics using computer analysis of DNA and protein sequences; evolution of AIDS viruses; the genetic changes that are associated with speciation; evolution of transposable elements; and the population genetics of genome structure.
