Darwin's Legacy

Darwin's LegacyThis international conference was hosted by the Origins Institute (OI) at McMaster University over 5 days in 2009, from May 25-29.

To celebrate the sesquicentennial for the publication of the 'Origin of Species,' the OI brought together scientists from a variety of disciplines who use natural selection (or a variant thereof) as a guiding principle in their research.

The conference comprised 9 sessions, each including a keynote address, an invited lecture, and contributed talks.

Session themes were organised to run from evolution to biodiversity, cognition, modification - molecules to organisms, and complexity - life on Earth and beyond.

A Hindustani music benefit concert for an orphanage-school and home for the aged was held immediately after the conference; please surf to here for information.
