Genes & Jazz
November 4, 2009
What do DNA and music have in common? Harold Varmus, Nobel Laureate and president of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, teams up with son Jacob Varmus, jazz trumpeter and composer, to explore the ways in which genes and notes affect complex organisms and compelling music. This father-son duo compares cell biology to musical development through a multimedia experience that features a performance by the Jacob Varmus Quintet. This program is made possible by the Richard S. Morse Fund.
