DNA: Unwinding the Theory of Evolution

DNA: Unwinding the Theory of Evolution
by Dr. Billy Sands, Institute of Cardiovascular and Medical Sciences, Glasgow University

We have entered an exciting post-genomic era resulting in an explosion of DNA sequences being produced from many organisms

This sequences include whole genomes and give us unparalleled insight into how life has changed and adapted over time.

This talk presents evidence for the common ancestry of organisms and discusses some examples of how new functions evolve from a gene perspective.

The Galilean Society aims to promote science to the general public.

We do this by hosting science talks, held every month, covering all aspects of science.

If you have an interest in science, come and join us in our quest to learn just a little bit more...

All lectures are at the level of ‘popular science’ talks and last about an hour, followed by a brief question time where you can put your questions to the speaker.

Our next talk is FREE and all members of the public are welcome to attend.
