OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last week Elena Bosch and Jaume Bertranpetit organized a B-Debate onthe Natural selection in humans. This B-Debate brought together international researchers from the areas of evolutionary biology, genetics, computation, biology and genomics but also from the fields of immunology, molecular and cell biology and medicine, that generated an interdisciplinary forum for debate and provided guidelines on how to handle and interpret the forthcoming huge amount of genomic information to reconstruct human evolution and understand the specificities of our species and of the diverse populations. Dr. Josefa González presented the work of her lab on the contribution of transposable elements to adaptive evolution.
