Join Pint of Science for an evening of facts and fun as part of the Norwich Science Festival celebrations. We'll be talking monkeys with esteemed TV scientist and evolutionary biologist Professor Ben Garrod, who will be sharing his knowledge about Primates of the Caribbean. We'll also be hearing from UEA's Professor Van Oosterhout, an evolutionary geneticist with some revolutionary tech up his sleeve. The evening will end with a short quiz and a chance to win some Pint of Science prizes.
Professor Ben Garrod
The Revolution in Evolution
Professor Cock van Oosterhout (Professor of Evolutionary Genetics, University of East Anglia)
Evolutionary genomics is going through a new revolution with ever faster sequencing technologies. But what are the new questions we can now answer, and how has this changed our understanding of evolution? And importantly, what does this tell us about our own impact on the environment, and the future of our planet?
