"University of Helsinki has a very strong tradition in linking together ecology and evolution. The Master's Programme here lets you discover this at every biological level, from genetics to populations, or from molecular mechanisms to behavioural plasticity." Rose Thorogood is Assistant Professor in the International Master's Programme in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Helsinki. The programme offers a wide variety of topics in three areas: ecology, evolutionary biology and conservation biology. It gives you a perspective on biology from the level of genes to communities of species and addresses global environmental challenges. You can apply to our International Master's Programmes as of 3 December 2018 until 11 January 2019.
Male salmon are maturing earlier and becoming smaller. A study examined salmon over a 40-year period, and looked at the population genetic profile of a gene that determines salmon’s age of maturity and size. The change in genes indicates that the size decrease is not just temporary, but has an evolutionary basis. “This is another example de-bunking the myth that evolution takes millions of years,” said the first author of the study.

What is current in research in different fields of science? What will be the next breakthrough? Welcome to the Professorien tervetuliaisluennot - Inaugural lectures on Wednesday 29 November. Craig Primmer is a professor in genomics in the Faculty of Biological and Environmental Sciences and the Institute of Biotechnology. The aim of his research is to understand which genes are important for allowing species living in the wild to adapt to their local conditions and how they respond to changes in those conditions. His research group studies salmon populations. The work is a mix of ecology, evolutionary biology and molecular genetics.
