Darwin Day at KU
On Darwin Day at KU-- February 12, at Noon -- the Center for Science Education will sponsor a Brown Bag Seminar in the Pine Room of the Kansas Union.
"Forms Most Beautiful: Ideas of Evolution at the Molecular Level," will be presented by Dr. Richard Schowen.
His talk is designed to present an understandable description of concepts developed between 1970 and the present of how proteins evolve to higher levels of functionality, and in particular, how enzymes have become better catalysts.
The idea is to make the story accessible to any curious adult. We're thinking that even a muddle-headed humanities type like RSR could grasp it. Maybe you could too.
