KEYNOTE TALK Sauganash Ballroom

How the Digital Leopard Got His Spots: Thinking About Evolution Inside the Box

Richard Lenski

Michigan State University

The field of evolutionary biology has strong theoretical and empirical foundations, yet it often suffers from an inability to pin down exactly what happened and how. These limitations reflect the extinction of intermediate forms and incomplete knowledge of the genetic and developmental mechanisms that produce most organismal features. Hence, evolutionary biologists often rely on plausibility arguments, which are sometimes criticized as ‘just-so’ stories. Experiments using organisms with rapid generations, such as bacteria, can overcome some of these limitations, but certain aspects remain obscure. Experiments with digital organisms and other computational systems offer the unique opportunity to observe evolutionary change and dissect its products in perfect detail (without the confining assumptions of more standard numerical simulations). To illustrate, I will present some experiments on the evolutionary origin of novel functions using the Avida system. From my own perspective as a biologist, I see many exciting opportunities at the interface of biology and computer science.


Richard Lenski is a biologist at Michigan State University. He received his undergraduate degree from Oberlin College, and his Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina. After a postdoc at the University of Massachusetts, he joined the faculty at the University of California, Irvine, then moved to MSU in 1991. For most of his career, he has studied bacteria in order to observe evolutionary dynamics on an experimentally tractable timescale. In one experiment, he has followed 12 replicate populations of bacteria while they have evolved for more than 30,000 generations in a laboratory environment. A few years ago, he also began collaborative research with Chris Adami (Caltech) and Charles Ofria (now at MSU) on ‘digital organisms’ in the Avida system. Lenski’s interest lies in exploring the evolutionary process in both the computational and biological realms.
