Bergstrom’s research uses mathematical models and evolutionary theory to understand biological and social processes on scales from intracellular information processing to the population-wide spread of emerging infectious diseases.
Dugatkin is the author of over articles on evolution and behavior in journals such as Nature and The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences and several trade monographs on the evolution of evolution by bergstrom and dugatkin and the history of science. He is currently studying the evolution of cooperation, aggression, antibiotic resistance, risk-taking behavior, and the interaction between genetic and cultural evolution.
Research topics include a study in which clonal interference in a yeast population was observed using whole-genome sequencing, as well as a paper illustrating genetic hitchhiking by describing a study of within-host evolution of the HIV virus.
A new chapter on human evolution highlights recent discoveries—including research that shows early humans did interbreed with Neanderthals. Clear explanations of quantitative methods teach students how to formulate questions about evolutionary processes and relationships the same way that researchers bergstrim the language of quantitative models.
