Development and evolution of the nematode male tail Professor D. Fitch 1. Gene evolution, form, classical evolutionary question 2. New forms evolving from old ones. 3. Simple changes, big effect 4. 98.5% identity between chimp and human (in non coding regions) a. Few genetics changes in differences b. Skull shape. Development changes pretty dramatic. Human and chimp go through pretty similar evolution. Human has slow down hetero chronic change, timing change. Growth rate slow. Important, adaptive, learn culture etc. We look more like a juvenile Chimp paedomorphisis 5. Selection: builds diversity Camis lupos familaris a. Simple genotypical changes 6. Opposite example a. b. Indentify developmental regulatory genes in morphology 7. Phenotype. a. C. H. Waddington. Marble model b. Genetic interactions. Heterochronic pathway module. c. Gnetbrowse.org. . Gene interaction graph d. Gnen on/off regulation by other genes 8. Worm Caenorhabditis elegans a. Phylogeny
