Understanding Heredity


Through years of scientific and technological advance, we’ve learned that heredity is as complex as it is important. Consider the seemingly simple trait of height. We now know that at least 800 distinct genes influence height in humans. Further, collectively, those genes explain only about one-quarter of the heritability of height! The subtitle of science writer Carl Zimmer's new book is The Powers, Perversions, and Potential of Heredity. In this Wonderfest collaboration with the Commonwealth Club, Zimmer will exhibit the depth of his research and the clarity of his discourse. He will help us to understand how humans have become who we are.
