McMaster Children and Youth University (Faculty of Health Sciences)

McMaster Children and Youth University. MCYU offers free, monthly Saturday morning lectures for young students (7-14 years old), to spark their curiosity and expose them to the university environment.   I will be presenting on April 27th, 2013.

Our genes, our world

Why do we look like – but not exactly like – our parents? We used to think of our genes as a set of instructions, a kind of blueprint for building cells and organs and babies, but we now know this story is far too simple: as is often the case, the world is far more complex and strangely wonderful than we had once imagined.
