Posted Nov 1, 2010

William Bialek, professor of Physics and Lewis-Sigler Institute faculty member, has been interviewed by New York Times science writer Natalie Angier, for a piece titled “Seeing the Natural World With a Physicist’s Lens.” The article describes “…the principle of optimization, an idea, gaining ever wider traction among researchers, that certain key features of the natural world have been honed by evolution to the highest possible peaks of performance…,” and how Dr. Bialek “…seeks to train the tools of physics on biology...”.

Biologists at NYU and Princeton Genome Centers Find Genetic Explanation for Evolutionary Change: Location, Location, Location. A gene's location on a chromosome plays a significant role in shaping how an organism's traits vary and evolve, according to findings by genome biologists at New York University's Center for Genomic and Systems Biology and Princeton University's Lewis-Sigler Institute. The research was conducted by Matthew V. Rockman, an assistant professor at New York University who was previously a postdoctoral student in the Kruglyak lab at Princeton, as well as Sonja S.
