For our Easter Einstein A Go Go, our team of Dr Shane, Dr Andi, Dr Krystal and Danger Mouse get together to talk science topics like genome sequencing of zebra finches, sampling Antarctic water from Lake Vostok and the early development of written languages from sixty thousand years ago. Danger Mouse goes into depth on the processes required to create life on earth. Our guest this week is Dr Jennifer Henry, director of life sciences at the New York Academy of Sciences. She talks to us about fellowships available to graduate and post-graduates for studying in America and some of the students who are studying under these fellowships. Dr Andi finishes the show off with a discussion of how microorganisms evolve and develop with our body and the surprising amount that they weigh.
