STEM Guest Lecture Series - Uncovering the Secrets to Biological Complexity

Scientists have long sought to understand the origins of biological complexity, including what makes us, as humans, such complex beings. Early assumptions that the secret to complexity was tied up in our DNA led to one of the most surprising outcomes of the Human Genome Project—that we have far fewer genes than many other seemingly simple organisms! This talk will explore the hypothesis that the true origin of biological complexity lies in our proteins and their intricate chemical structures.
