WHOLE GENOME DUPLICATION
In 2020, I presented a guest lecture to a chordate zoology class (BIOL 307) at the University of Victoria on whole genome duplication. Multiple massive duplication events in the common ancestors of 3 vertebrate lineages are partially responsible for the 'Cambrian Explosion' (great diversification of life). I explored these topics and unpacked the genetic processes that drive such impressive evolutionary events.
