Ignite Show, Episode 6: Dr. Jayson Falkner on DNA Science, It Works!

By Mary Rotman

In this new episode of the Ignite Show, Dr. Jayson Falkner explains the latest in DNA Science, how its effected human evolution and what it's doing to our society. The title is a tribute to the classic XKCD cartoon "Science! It Works...".

The Ignite Show will feature a different speaker every Tuesday for free. It's available on YouTube (user: Ignite), on our Ignite site and via iTunes. It is being released under Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 United States License.

The format of Ignite is 20 slides that auto-advance after 15 seconds. When you are on stage giving an Ignite talk this can be quite exhilarating (sometimes terrifying). The added adrenalin really adds to the presentation and I think that will come through on the small screen.

Ignite has spread to over 20 cities in the past two years. We want to highlight speakers from around the world with the show. If your town or city has lots of geeks throw an Ignite to bring them together!
