The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' but 'That's funny...' --Isaac Asimov

Guest Lectures

March 23rd, 2012 by eric

I recently gave guest lectures in Jon Stone’s “Life in the Universe” course (2LU3) and in Paul Higgs’ “Genomes and Evolution” course (4Y03) at McMaster. For “Life in the Universe” I gave a general overview of the prospects for finding life on Earth and elsewhere in the universe. For “Genomes and Evolution” I talked about the DNA sequencing explosion and how it has elucidated the evolution of microbial genomes, using a bunch of examples from ocean-dwelling microbes. The slides for each lecture are available here: 2LU3, 4Y03.
