Opening Session
John C. Avise - "The Genetic Gods"
Tuesday, January 4 - 8:00-9:00 pm

Make sure to join us for the Opening Session, featuring John C. Avise, Professor of Genetics at the University of Georgia. Avise will begin the meeting with a talk on "The Genetic Gods," elaborating on his recent book by the same name. How are recent advances in genetics reshaping the views of biologists and society about what determines our lives? Exploring this question will be a fitting way to enter the last year of the millennium and prepare for the next. Don't miss it!
