Live from the Lab: Stories of Animal Ancestors – Part 2 – How to Generate and Regenerate an Organism

30. November 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 2 – How to Generate and Regenerate an Organism

If we look closely, we can see common themes and patterns in animal diversity. How do similar cells create different body shapes? How can one cell organise and build an entire animal from scratch? What enables some cells to regenerate missing body parts? Scientists give insights into their research, contributing to answering questions about how the body forms.
