The most nanoscopically sweeping and comprensive — and according to some critics, the most impassioned — Nano-Lecture delivered at the 2003 Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony was by Eric Lander, on the topic THE GENOME. See it here. This is the fifth of the five Nano-Lectures weve posted.
All five of the Nano-Lectures can be heard on NPR Science Friday’s archived broadcast of the ceremony. Hear it here.
(NOTE: If you have a suggestion for someone who would be a splendid Nano-Lecturer at the 2004 ceremony (which will be held Thursday evening, September 30, at Harvard University), please let us know.)
