DNA science is everywhere in the news and pop culture, from the courtroom to the tabloids. But Field Museum scientists go beyond the headlines in their work. Their research seeks answers to deeper questions: Who are our ancestors? How did life on Earth evolve? How are species related?

Every weekday from 11am to noon, scientists from our Pritzker Laboratory for Evolutionary Biology and Molecular Systematics are on hand to answer questions about their latest research and what they’ve learned from studying DNA. No reservation is necessary—just drop by the Daniel. F. and Ada L. Rice DNA Discovery Center for casual answers to your burning questions about the origins of life.
