Frederick M. Cohan

Biography

Frederick M. Cohan is a professor of biology and a professor of environmental studies at Wesleyan University. He earned his B.S. in biology at Stanford University and was awarded the first Ph.D. from Harvard University’s then-new Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology. He studies the origins of ecological diversity in bacteria and is working to develop an “idiot’s guide” to bacterial systematics—a universal system to identify the most newly divergent bacterial species before we know anything about the ecological or physiological differences that distinguish them. He teaches various courses in evolutionary biology, bioinformatics and the effects of global change on infectious disease. Address: Department of Biology, Wesleyan University, Middletown, CT 06459-0170. E-mail: fcohan at wesleyan dot edu
