Readings: Adaptation and Natural Selection. (Williams 1966), Natural Selection: Domains Levels and Challenges (Williams 1992)

How to sharpen pencils: We do a good deal of theory in the lab (read about the Theory for Life group at UMN). This often requires a sharp pencil. This video will help you sharpen your pencil so that you can do good work!



Nurturing science: Above, we learned that we can’t sharpen pencils without a pencil – similarly you can’t do science without scientists. Uri Alon has many excellent resources about nurturing science and scientists [e.g. here]. I am posting one of his videos below, view the rest here.
