Darwin Day Lecture:
Plasticity, Epigenetics, and Evolution
Tuesday, February 12, 7-8:30 p.m.
Celebrate Darwin's birthday with this free lecture by UNC biology professor David Pfennig! Genes are widely regarded as the fundamental unit of heredity and source of all biological information. Yet many organisms can respond to changes in their environment by altering their features during their lifetime via developmental plasticity. These environmentally modified traits can sometimes be passed to offspring in the absence of changes in genes. Free, preregistration required. Register now >
