In observation of Darwin's 210th birthday, the Biology Department will host Richard Lenski, the John Hannah Distinguished Professor of Microbial Ecology at Michigan State University and member of the National Academy of Sciences. Lenski is well known for his long-term evolution experiment. Over the course of this more than 30-year long experiment, he and his students and colleagues have studied more than 70,000 generations of evolution in action using the fast-growing bacterium, E. coli. Lenski will deliver a lecture entitled "Time Travel in Experimental Evolution" for a general audience on what this remarkable experiment has revealed about the most fundamental process in biology. The lecture will be held on Darwin Day, Tuesday, Feb. 12, at 11:10 a.m. in Higley Hall Auditorium.
