Genotype to Phenotype: Molecular Evolution for the Classroom
When: July 30 - Aug 1, 2012
Where: University of Wisconsin, Madison
Registration Deadline: June 30
More Information: http://tinyurl.com/863v66q
Contact: Kristin Jenkins (kjenkins@nescent.org), Deb Rook (drook@wisc.edu) or Mara McDonald (mamcdona@wisc.edu)

Understanding the genotype to phenotype connection is important in understanding evolution, but it is a challenging area for students.  This workshop is for high school and middle school (both pre-service and in-service) teachers, and will explore the molecular basis of evolution.  Join us for a look at the genetic underpinnings of evolution.
