INTERNATIONAL MASTER: FROM MOLECULAR DEVELOPMENTAL BIOLOGY TO BIOMEDICINE, EVOLUTION AND SYSTEMS BIOLOGY


UNIVERSITY OF LISBON


Evolution and development
6 ECTS


PRESENTATION

We can identify two ways by which development and evolution can interact. Ontogeny is itself shaped in the course of natural history giving rise to novelty in structure, forms and body plans. On the other hand, the paths available to evolution are themselves contingent upon established developmental processes. Fondamental concepts in this field (modularity, constraints, robustness, plasticity, convergence…) will be developped through examples taken from comparative studies between different animal groups and experimental approaches.
