Matt Scott: Molecular Architects

In this interview filmed for Evolution: "Great Transformations," Matt Scott describes how scientists look for and analyze genes that control animal body development. The discovery that all animals "are just variations of a body plan that existed half a billion years ago" surprised most in the scientific community, and has practical applications for understanding human disease.
