|Title||The Common Genetic Code|
|Description||Paul Nurse demonstrated that a strain of yeast with a defective gene could use the human version of that gene to repair itself. That we not only share a common genetic code with other organisms, but that we actually share specific genes, is powerful evidence of our common ancestry. Footage from Secret of Life: "Immortal Thread."|
