What's it about?

About 100,000 years ago, Homo sapiens were just one animal among many—so how did we evolve to become the dominant species on this planet? In these Blinks, we explore the role DNA and genetic research play in deciphering our past and where humanity's journey might be heading towards. You'll learn about the evolution of scientific theory, how innocuous aspects of contemporary living might be harming us, and celebrate humanity's development of reason, consciousness, and free will along the way.
