Bioenergetics and the major evolutionary transitions
Organised by Dr Nick Lane, Professor John Allen, Professor John Raven FRS and Professor William Martin
Cellular bioenergetics produce shifts in genome architecture and vice versa. Some of the major transitions of evolution depend on this interaction. This meeting will focus on the interactions between genomes and energy flow, from the origin of cells in hydrothermal vents to photosynthesis, and from mitochondrial genes in the eukaryotic cell to the evolution of multicellular organisms.
