Zeit und Ort

Friday 10.15-11.45, Room Seminarraum Gaub (Amalienstr. 54, 1. Stock)

The basics processes of Darwinian evolution are replication, mutation and selection. However, what are the crucial boundary conditions and possible strategies of evolution? We want to give a guide through the rather complex recent literature, also in the light of  recent experimental and theoretical studies.
