Happy Birthday Chuck!

NHGRI asks if Darwin is relevant today….and guess what the answer is? :)

You can go here for a page devoted to the festivities: http://genome.gov/27529500

You can launch the video there if it doesn’t work here:

My favorite part of the video is when Leslie Biesecker takes us from Darwin–>software, of course.  Later on he also talks about how important evolutionary concepts are to our interpretation of health and disease.  I mean, I know you guys get this–but I think it is the piece that makes me craziest about the people who want to deny evolution and its relevance today.

Couldn’t they have found at least 1 woman to interview, though?  I saw them in the background….I know they were there…
