Allan Wilson : evolutionary by George Andrews( Visual )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Narrated by paleonanthropologist Tim White, this documentary surveys the far-reaching accomplishments of biologist and molecular biologist Allan Wilson. Featuring commentary from Wilson's coworkers at the University of California-Berkeley, his former graduate students, and his family members, Wilson's work is shown to have changed the face of anthropology and evolutionary biology. Collaborating with anthropologist Vince Sarich, Wilson developed a new theory of the relationship between time and genetic divergence, discovering a molecular clock in evolution. Challenging the use of fossils in determining humans' evolution from apes, Wilson and Sarich's theory measured divergence using molecular phylogenies and polymerase chain reaction technologies. While Wilson's work is widely celebrated today, White discusses the backlash that Wilson faced when challenging biologists to look towards molecular biology, and in challenging molecular biologists to broaden their scope
