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.
