Molecular Insights into Classic Examples of Evolution Symposium Live Webcast

This looks awesome! I’ll be at NASW in New Haven CT at the time (I think my session is exactly at this time – bummer!) but if I could I would watch it. If you can, you certainly should watch it:

“Molecular Insights into Classic Examples of Evolution” Symposium to be Webcast Live from NABT Conference in Minneapolis

Are you interested in evolution, but unable to attend this year’s National Association of Biology Teachers (NABT) conference in Minneapolis? Would you and your students like to learn more about how molecular approaches are providing new insights into some of the “classic” examples of evolution you discuss in your class? If so, you will be excited to learn that the annual NABT Evolution Symposium will be accessible via live webcast on Friday, Nov. 5th from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm, Central time.

Teachers and students are encouraged to tune in to all or part of the free webcast for an opportunity to hear internationally renowned researchers discuss their fascinating, cutting-edge work in molecular evolutionary biology. Classrooms all over the world will even be able to submit their questions online and have the speakers respond in real time!

For more information, including speaker names, talk titles and times, please see or contact

To view the live, free webcast, simply go to at 11 am Pacific/12 pm Mountain/1 pm Central/2 pm Eastern and log in as a guest. (Note: We suggest you do this in advance to test the connection and make sure you can access the site without problems. When you log in successfully you’ll see a “Congratulations” message. If you have problems, please contact

This year’s Evolution Symposium features four exciting speakers whose research in molecular evolution is revolutionizing our understanding of familiar and compelling examples of evolution. Learn more about Sean Carroll’s work in Drosophila wing coloration and Hopi Hoekstra’s research into the underlying molecular mechanisms of coat color in beach mice. Butch Brodie will present research on the toxin arms race between newts and garter snakes, and Allen Rodrigo will talk about the practical and research value of studies in viral evolution.
