Page Simulator005 by Laurence Loewe, last updated: Apr 08, 2016 04:45 PM
Simulator005 investigates the the accumulation of harmful and beneficial DNA-changes in non-recombining populations. These asexual systems can experience a phenomenon called "Muller's ratchet" and might help to understand the evolution of human mitochondrial DNA.

Page Welcome to evolution@home and evolutionary-research! by admin, last updated: May 21, 2015 01:51 PM
Evolution@home is the first global computing system for evolutionary biology. It allows everybody with an Internet PC to contribute to evolutionary-research by running simulations of evolution.

Folder Evolution of Sex and Breeding Systems by Laurence Loewe, last updated: Apr 14, 2015 07:52 PM
Why do most higher organisms reproduce sexually? Why be diploid rather than haploid? Why should there be separate sexes? What factors affect mate choice? How does ecology influence the breeding system? Such questions are the focus of much current research in evolutionary biology. In this course, we will examine explanations for the diversity of breeding systems that we see around us.
Folder Evolutionary Genetics by Laurence Loewe, last updated: Apr 14, 2015 07:52 PM
How can population genetical theory be applied to the study of natural populations? What is important in building evolutionary models? What can we infer from DNA sequence diversity found in populations? Can we detect evidence for population structure in genes? What can we infer about selection and inbreeding in natural populations? This course will cover various approaches to answer these questions using classic and state-of-the-art methods.

Page Research interests of Laurence Loewe by Laurence Loewe, last updated: Apr 14, 2015 06:23 PM
My research centres on detailed simulation models that integrate biological knowledge in order to understand more about evolution. To do this I combine current systems biology with evolutionary genetics in an approach that I call evolutionary systems biology. I use this approach to investigate the genetic basis for adaptive evolution and the evolutionary consequences of slightly deleterious mutations. These general topics are important for understanding the evolution of antibiotics resistance in bacteria and many other practical problems.
