  • We are taken on a journey through time and technology, from the inbred Holy Roman Empire to the birthplace of American eugenics to the Japanese lab where scientists are reprogramming skin cells into eggs and sperm.
Notes
  • She has her mother’s laugh, or sense of humour, or sensibility, or even intelligence. It raises the age-old question; genetics or environment? In his book, Carl Zimmer dispels longstanding misconceptions about heredity. We are taken on a journey through time and technology, from the inbred Holy Roman Empire to the birthplace of American eugenics to the Japanese lab where scientists are reprogramming skin cells into eggs and sperm - the book covers the entire history of genetics and epigenetics. It was The Guardian’s Science Book of the Year in 2018. This discussion took place at the Adelaide Writer’s Festival.
