Professor Steve Donnellan - DNA dissects curious beasts
Tuesday 1 November, 6pm – 7pm (the Museum will open to guests at 5:30pm, with a complimentary glass of wine available prior to the talk)
You might think that we have discovered all of the planet’s curious beasts, but DNA technology is unravelling another layer of curiosity. Not only are there more curious beasts than we anticipated but the curious just get more curious as we investigate their lives.
The Museum's newly appointed Head of Research and Collections, Professor Steve Donnellan, will outline the South Australian Museum's pioneering role in using DNA technology to discover and explain our biodiversity. Join Steve for an armchair tour through our catalogue of recent exciting discoveries about our curious beasts.
Admission to the Curious Beasts exhibition can be purchased on the night (admission is free for Museum Members) and the exhibition will be open from 5:30pm until 8pm.
