Canceled: P&P Live! : Neil Shubin - Some Assembly Required: Decoding Four Billion Years of Life, from Ancient Fossils to DNA

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, March 31, 2020 - 6:00pm

This event has been canceled and may be rescheduled for a later date.

For decades, paleontologists have relied on fossils for clues to how life evolved—or failed to. Now, thanks to advances in molecular biology, scientists have added DNA technology to their tool kit. In his fascinating new book, Shubin, the Robert R. Bensley Professor of Organismal Biology and Anatomy at the University of Chicago and Associate Dean of Biological Sciences, shows how these new approaches have revolutionized our understanding of evolution. Writing with the same clarity and narrative energy that made Your Inner Fish and The Universe Within so riveting, Shubin presents the latest discoveries about whole-scale shifts in how animals live and how their bodies are organized and explores questions including whether life on Earth is inevitable or mere chance.
