Afternoon Scholars Lecture: "Genetic Mutations"
DNAGenetic mutations - or changes to the genome - are necessary to generate the diversity required for evolution, but they're also responsible for drug-resistant bacteria and play central roles in cancer and aging. Join Dr. Floyd Romesberg from the Scripps Research Institute to discover how today's research may one day prevent antibiotic-resistant bacteria or the development of cancer in human cells. After the lecture, step into the IMAX Dome Theater for a special 2 p.m. screening of FORCES OF NATURE.
