Biology is in the news: GMOs, CRISPR, Disappearing Monarchs, DNA and finding criminals, immunization, Neanderthal DNA, and more. This discussion group is for people interested in current advances and issues in biology and biomedical science. A background in science is not necessary. Participants would be asked to read one or more articles before each session. Most articles would be available from the New York Times Science Times (https://www.nytimes.com/section/science) or Genetic Literacy Project (https://geneticliteracyproject.org). The discussion will be led by Dr. Rick Elinson, a retired professor with 40 years teaching experience.
SHPL cardholders can reserve their seat beginning Nov. 1, others Nov. 8.
Out of district patrons may register in person or by phone 7 days after registration opens.
