Information theory: Helping Darwin around genomic obstacles

For many years, Professor Les Hatton was an academic in the School of Computer Science and Mathematics at Kingston University, where he made significant contributions to both REF2014 (including with a paper published in "Nature") and RAE2008 (he led the School's submission). Les is a polymath who has contributed to many areas including software engineering, genetics, geophysics, meteorology, art, music and sport. Since his retirement in 2014, he became an Emeritus professor in the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing at Kingston University, remaining research active through his involvement in many projects with international collaborators. As part of the DIRC seminar Series, Les will be presenting the results of his latest research (published in 2019 in the prestigious "Royal Society Open Science") on evidence of an information-theoretical conservation principle linking discrete systems such as computer software, proteins and music.
