This workshop will provide introductory material on genomics and evolution. The speaker will highlight key concepts in how genome sequences are being used to address fundamental questions in evolutionary biology. This workshop will help you and your students understand things like:

- How genomes are helping delineate the relationships among vertebrates
- How genomes can be searched for evidence of natural selection
- What genomes can tell us about adaptation and speciation
- What genomes reveal about the origin of modern humans
