Hey all you Seattle and environs types – Jen McCreight is doing a talk at Town Hall next Monday.
(Why are those graphics always male? Do the artists not realize that the species is not all-male?)
What makes us human? Scientists and philosophers have been asking the question for years. This age-old query is also the subject of UW genome sciences student Jennifer McCreight’s research. She’ll compare the DNA of humans to chimpanzees, monkeys, and lemurs, sharing how genetic differences help paint a picture of how Homo sapiens walk, talk, and have larger brains.
That’s twice today that the word “lemur” has appeared here. Independently. What are the odds?
