Develop an understanding about the genotypic/phenotypic evolution of early life forms and how changing environments contributed to the development of complex systems in simple organisms. From this understanding, you will be better prepared for future discoveries about extraterrestrial life that might come from sample return missions or exploration of other planets. The multifaceted projects in the MBL/Brown Astrobiology Program are united by common scientific interests and resource requirements for studies of molecular evolution.

Work with scientists in these laboratories at the MBL:

Josephine Bay Paul Center for Molecular Biology and Evolution
