Rob DeSalle and Michael Yudell, authors of "Welcome to the Genome: A User's Guide to the Genetic Past, Present, and Future," will be speaking at the American Museum of Natural History on Thursday, December 16, at 7 p.m.

Leading us on a fascinating and instructive tour through one of the most important moments in the history of biology, Dr. DeSalle and Mr. Yudell will address the power and potential of DNA, including the history of the genome, present-day and anticipated future advancements, and the issues involved in this ever-changing area of science.

Unraveling the often-misunderstood mystery of the genome and how it can better our lives, Dr. DeSalle and Mr. Yudell will discuss such controversial and vital topics as:

  • Personalized Medicine
  • Race and Genetics
  • Genetically Modified Food
  • Evolution and Genetics
  • Ethical and Policy Challenges

This event is open to the public. There is a $15.00 Admission ($13.50 for members, students, and seniors).

There will be a question and answer session following the presentation, and books will be available for purchase.
