Is evolution predictable at the molecular level? The ambitious goal to answer this question requires an understanding of the mutational effects that govern the complex relationship between genotype and phenotype. In practice, it involves integrating systems-biology modelling, microbial laboratory evolution experiments and large-scale mutational analyses — a feat that is made possible by the recent availability of the necessary computational tools and experimental techniques. This Review investigates recent progresses in mapping evolutionary trajectories and discusses the degree to which these predictions are realistic.

Systems-biology approaches for predicting genomic evolution
For years, I've worked on their bones. Now I'm working on their genes. Read more about the science studying these ancient people.
From a finger bone of an ancient human came the record of a completely unexpected population. My lab is working on the science of the Denisova genome.
The advent of agriculture caused natural selection to speed up greatly in humans. We're uncovering some of the ways that populations have rapidly changed during the last 10,000 years.
