Molecular Evolution

Living things all are alike at the cellular and molecular level. The fundamental similarities between living organisms are explained by evolutionary theory. Major topics in molecular evolution concern the rates and impacts of single nucleotide changes, origins of new genes, the evolution of development, and ways that evolutionary forces influence genomic and phenotypic changes. Some of the key advances are quantitative estimates of both the diversity in populations and of evolutionary relationships, as well as improvements in theoretical understanding. There is an improved understanding of the function of proteins and much better models of the common patterns of development.
