Summary: May be used in conjunction with Telecourse Faculty Guide for Unseen Life on Earth : An Introduction to Microbiology.
Recent genetic techniques have led to new theories of evolution and the relationships between organisms. Students examine this "evolution revolution," using molecular sequences to trace the phylogenetic relationships of microbial life. Both the big picture of microbial evolution and the methods necessary for determining molecular phylogenies are examined.
