SFI News:
 
The Santa Fe Institute (SFI) lecture “DNA, Love, and Gender” with Karissa Sanbonmatsu is at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday Jan. 19, at The Lensic Performing Arts Center.
 
When it comes to human behavior, some traits are neither nature nor nurture, but something altogether different. That “something” is epigenetics, the science that helps to explain how the environment, including some social interactions, alter DNA.
 
In this talk, Dr. Karissa Sanbonmatsu gives an overview of the new science of epigenetics, which may help to understand autism, addiction, depression, Alzheimer’s, and even love. 
 
Dr. Karissa Sanbonmatsu is a principal investigator at Los Alamos National Laboratory, studying epigenetics, RNA, and molecular machines. With over a half-million views, her 2014 TEDx talk describes how she found her way to epigenetics research.
