More on Mr Darwin

I should have added to my last posting the link to more information about our Darwin calendar for the year - here!

The Science Open Day mentioned is more precisely 10 am to 4 pm on 23 August (i.e. not 23 and 24 August).

But first...starting on Monday, come look at what Darwin's scientific ancestors are doing in Sydney. See how they risk life and limb to collect plants, then grind them up to extract long 'sentences' such as TACGAATTCCGATGACAC... - sentences without punctuation and using only four letters, but the code of life.

Visit the Red Box Gallery, to your left after you cross the Cahill Expressway on Mrs Macquaries Road.
