Evolving Enzymes and Testing Darwin’s Theory with Ann Gauger, Pt 2
On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Ann Gauger shares more about her experimental work evolving enzymes in the lab, honing in on how complex and specified enzymes are generated and testing Darwinian predictions experimentally. Listen in as she shares what her most recent study discovered about an insurmountable problem for evolution. Ann Gauger received a BS in biology from MIT, and a PhD in developmental biology from the University of Washington, where she studied cell adhesion molecules involved in Drosophila embryogenesis. As a post-doctoral fellow at Harvard she cloned and characterized the Drosophila kinesin light chain. Her research has been published in Nature, Development, and the Journal of Biological Chemistry.
