Royal Society prize lecture: Our genomes, our history

Professor McVean will discuss how his research has led to new views on the origin of mutation, the nature of adaptation and the evolution of recombination.


Francis Crick prize lecture 2010 by Professor Gilean McVean, University of Oxford

Genetic differences between humans reflect the fundamental processes, such as mutation, recombination and natural selection, which have influenced our evolutionary history. Now that we can chart the genomes of many individuals, we are finding many surprises about the nature of these forces. Professor McVean will discuss how his research has led to new views on the origin of mutation, the nature of adaptation and the evolution of recombination.

Professor McVean is a member of the Mathematical Genetics Group in the Department of Statistics at University of Oxford.
