At first, I read that as “Slacker Darwin Colloquium”. Probably says a lot about me.…

Thanks a lot! I love reading stuff like this, especially when it is free.

Thanks RBH. A very valuable resource indeed.

I especially liked the paper on natural selection in speciation. It detailed genomic studies that establish the regions of the chromosomes under selection and the transient mosaic nature of the genome during speciation.

Now who was that guy who was always coming around whining that there was no evidence of natural selection acting in speciation? Funny how he never seemed to read this paper, or anything like it.

Ooh, yeah, I just looked at the abstract and some of the studies it cites. That must be one of the best papers in the whole colloquium. Looking fwd to reading the whole thing.

Actually, there are three volumes. Lynch only linked to the third. The first is here and the second is here.

Thanks afarensis. I found the papers on the evolution of complexity and the evolution of regulatory mechanisms most interesting.

When that guy who believes in genetic entropy, or that guy who doesn’t believe in developmental genetics comes back with his magic invisible hologram nonsense, we will now have that much more ammunition to use against them. Funny how there is nothing so well proven that someone will still refuse to believe it. Also funny how those are the same guys who refuse to read the scientific literature. Coincidence? I don’t think so.

That would be a good title for a “creationism/evolution” colloquium. After all it is the “slackers” who keep demanding the right to peddle their pseudoscience in class.
