Fermilab Lecture Series presents:
Evolution in the 21st Century
Dr. James Shapiro
University of Chicago
Friday, January 22, 2010 @ 8 p.m.- Tickets $7

Ideas about evolution were first formulated before biology and genetics developed into the sophisticated sciences they are today. Molecular biology has had a profound impact on our understanding of how organisms are related to each other and how they change over time. Genome sequencing reveals the evolutionary record as it remains in the DNA of living organisms and constitutes a test of theories about how evolution has occurred. Discoveries about the molecular and cellular nature of evolutionary changes show that this remains a vital and exciting area of science with many new theoretical and experimental possibilities.
