Summary: (CIT): The genomes of contemporary humans were shaped by evolutionary forces, such as mutation, selection, migration, and genetic drift. Because Africa plays a central role in the story of human evolution, research there is yielding a wealth of knowledge about human origins and diversity as well as a deeper understanding of evolutionary processes. Dr. Tishkoff has conducted ground-breaking research on African genetic diversity and the genetic basis of adaptation in humans. Lecture series presented by National Institute of General Medical Sciences, the Office of Science Education, and the National Human Genome Research Institute.
