Some of the projects include research done by Rosemary and Peter Grant on Galapagos Finches, Philip Gingerich’s research on fossil discoveries of walking whales, Svante Pääbo’s research on the genetic ties between humans and chimps, and Charles Wood’s research on the rapid evolution of the HIV virus.
