We encourage you to attend this discussion and encourage your input (comments, questions, etc) before and after the event (you can follow the event on Twitter @THMorgan1886).

This event is part of broader series of events celebrating the 150th birthday of Dr. Thomas Hunt Morgan - Lexington native and Nobel prize winner. His work on fruit fly genetics laid the foundation for modern genetics. We hope you will attend this and other events, and help us spread the word about TH Morgan.
