Dr. Michael T. Clegg

(University of California, Irvine Donald Bren Professor of Biological Sciences)

Dr.Clegg’s research specialty is population genetics and molecular evolution. He has published over 160 research articles and book chapters and he has coauthored or edited nine books. In molecular evolution, Clegg pioneered the use of molecular methods for the study of plant evolution, first by showing that chloroplast DNA sequences evolve slowly relative to plant nuclear genes, and then by demonstrating how maximum likelihood analyses could be used to infer plant phylogenetic relationships at deep levels of plant evolution. In population genetics, Clegg combined empirical studies with statistical and mathematical analyses to show that correlations between genes

Prof. David Mumford

( University Professor Emeritus, Brown University )

Prof. Mumford had worked and taught at Brown and Harvard Universities during his whole career. His work has been in both pure and applied mathematics. In pure mathematics, he centered on moduli problems, the roadmaps of algebraic geometry which have found application in string theory.

In applied mathematics his concern was mathematical techniques and statistical models for perception, especially vision, and itsneurophysiological embodiment in the brain.Most recently, he has been engaged in differential
