EES Workshop 2: Integrating development and inheritance
13-15 February 2018
This workshop will discuss:
(i) the historical origins of the separation of development and inheritance and their description in genetic terms, and how this shaped the development of research programmes within evolutionary biology,
(ii) the possible implications of alternative conceptualizations, and the re-integration of this relationship, that are emerging through recent advances in the biological sciences, and are emphasized by the EES, and
(iii) how experimental work and mathematical modelling best can proceed under constructive views of development and inheritance and the implication it has for how to assign fitness and establish adaptation.
Participants will contribute to a special edition of a relevant journal.
Location: SFI, Sante Fe, USA
Organizers: Kevin Laland & Tobias Uller
