JCHC University: Genetics: The Strange Case of the 3-letter Code Part 1
5 November 2015 @ 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Presenter: Mark Grebenau
A.A., B.A. M.S., M.B.A. JD, M.D., Ph.D.
Location: Village Apartments
Dr. Grebenau has been going to school for the last 60 years; during this time, he became a physician/scientist and spent over 25 years at Novartis Pharmaceuticals where he was involved with the progression of organ transplantation from a desperate experimental procedure to an accepted part of medical therapy. Although he no longer works at Novartis, he continues to learn, and to teach by giving instructive lectures on a wide range of topics to audiences of all ages.
This lecture will examine genetic inheritance in plants and animals, and how the rules of inheritance were derived. It will then turn to the genetic code responsible for this inheritance that is incorporated into the structure of Deoxyribonucleic Acid (RNA), and its use to construct Proteins will be explained.
