8. December 2020 @ 19:00 - 20:00
Have you ever wanted to travel back in time and understand how animal life came to be? This series might be your best chance. Join researchers as they ask the same overarching question: what did animal ancestors look like? In an attempt to answer this question, we will discuss modern methods in science, take a look at the fossil record, how cells shape the bodies of different animals and how they evolve. Bring along your burning questions on the origins and evolution of animal life and join in the discussion.
Part 5- The Cyber Age of Science
Did you know there are terabytes upon terabytes of scientific data we can freely access? Is infinite data infinite knowledge? In this episode, the speakers will show how biologists collect, compare, and compute data to generate knowledge in the era of big data.
