The European Society for Evolutionary Biology (ESEB) has just awarded its President's Award to Professor Adam Eyre-Walker.
Prof. Eyre-Walker, a pioneer in the use of sequence data to infer patterns of genome evolution, is a member of the Committee of the Genetics Society and has been deeply involved with the Society for several years.
The award is for mid-career scientists who have made outstanding contributions to evolutionary biology, and Adam has done this in the areas of molecular and genome evolution. His work combines population genetic models and bioinformatics to investigate the evolution of codon usage, protein sequence evolution, fitness and sequence divergence, among other things. Adam is a fitting winner of this award.
Congratulations to him from the Genetics Society.
