Speaker: Dr. Stuart Reichler, School of Biological Sciences
With a full house in attendance, Dr. Stuart Reichler (Plant Biology http://www.biosci.utexas.edu/graduate... ) used scenes from the 1997 science fiction movie GATTACA as a springboard for discussing issues of nature vs. nurture, biometrics and security, and the human need to classify and categorize other humans. Reichler and audience members also reflected on the technology in the story in light of recent developments in embryology.
