[Thematic Workshop] "Evolution across scales"

What is the link between the pattern of a Romanesco broccoli, the folding of an antibody, the social organisation of a pack of wolves, or the variation of the atmosphere over the last 4 billion years ?

Biology deals with an extreme diversity of patterns, from the molecular to the planetary scale, and the single common point behind all these different patterns is that of the evolutionary process that shapes them. Like the famous phrase from Theodosius Dobzhansky says, "Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution."

Underlying these very complex patterns, evolution is a process that is fundamentally very simple. As reproduction happens, a heritable variation that leads to more reproduction is then observed more and more as time goes on.

This day will be an occasion to present and discuss the tools available to us today to observe, understand and leverage the process of evolution.

We will talk about the importance of evolution for the development of our brains and for the effectiveness of our immune response. We will discuss how evolution selects morphology and behaviours, and how we can inspire us from, and leverage this process to design new tools.

We will also talk about the wealth of information that is contained in genome sequences, and that can help us understand virulence and the past history of populations.
