My name is Art Covert and on any given day I'm an educator, evolutionary biologist, programmer and scientist.
This blog will serve as a home for my thoughts on science and education, with occasional reblogs from my photo-a-day blog.
You can read a bit about me on my website. I also teach a year long research course in computational evolution. My student spend a year in the lab doing experiments with self-replicating computer programs. In that time they also learn how to use the linux command line, python for data analysis, and a bit about scientific writing.
I'm going to try and break down everything I work on into bite-sized bits and post them here about once every two weeks, so stay tuned!
NB [9/9/2013]: I'm delighted to answer questions, especially from students! However my blog will not be a forum for discussing creationist criticisms of evolution. Any such comments will be deleted, along with other comments that are off-topic, irrelevant or indecipherable.
