No I am not a pharmacist. But it doesn't matter. The study of evolution in Biology is irrelevant in Pharmacology. All it needs to is deal with drugs and its effects in the mind and body. With your logic, every major that requires biology means all majors are dependent on evolutionary biology. I believe that's fallacy of division.<quoted text>
There has always been arguments where to put species on the tree, a very hard job in some cases.
Perhaps you did not study pharmacology far enough to get to that.
"What does computer science have to do with evolution?"
You may have to ask the professor at Princeton that one.:)
But I do know it takes crunching numbers to calculate how many mutations by the evolutionary clock or (molecular clock) over how much time it would take a species to develop certain characteristics in DNA, so they can look back and see when a species emerged. All part of molecular biology, which is tied to evolutionary biology. You need computers to deal with such numbers,
though they can be done by humans the time involved is ridiculous.
What is the use of computer science when dealing with evolution when there is no hard evidence for mutations in speciation? Do you have evidence?
