HYDERABAD: What is the human genome made of? Can Darwin’s theory of evolution be proved by scientific experiments?

What are the two basic traits, which define a living being? The questions are hard to explain. However, noted scientist and Director of Research for L. V. Prasad Eye Institute Professor D. Balasubramanian attempted to answer these fascinating questions related to genetics.

While delivering the third Professor Alladi Prabhakar Endowment Lecture at Mekastar auditorium on Friday, Dr. Balasubramanian said that genetics is the only science that can provide enough scientific proof to Darwin’s theory of evolution.
