Science: Sam Kean: The Case of the Mysterious DNA
Bestselling author Sam Kean explores genetics with the panache of Sherlock Holmes and the storytelling chops of Arthur Conan Doyle. The eponymous violinist of Kean's new book The Violinist's Thumb, for instance, refers to Niccolo Paganini, who suffered from a rare genetic disorder that gave him "freakishly flexible fingers," as well as a host of painful ailments. Wunderkind Kean also tackles the case of Homo Sapiens vs. Neanderthals (we won), and illuminates the work of Darwin and contemporary scientists alike. Presented as part of Seattle Science Lectures, with Pacific Science Center and University Book Store. Series sponsored by Microsoft. Series media sponsorship provided by KPLU.
