Bestselling author Sam Kean speaking on "The Violinist's Thumb" TODAY April 16th

Description:
"Did the human race almost go extinct? Can genetics explain a crazy cat ladys love for felines? How does DNA lead to people with no fingerprints, or humans born with tails? And how did the right combination of genes create the exceptionally flexible thumbs and fingers of a truly singular violinist?" These are questions posed in "The Violinist's Thumb" by national bestselling author Sam Kean. Join us for his talk in CHEM 1407 on Tuesday, April 16th at 5:00 PM, hosted by the Alpha Chi Sigma Chemistry Fraternity.
