More about DNA to Z

In DNA to Z, twenty-six scientists who are among the best in their field talk about recent discoveries based on a letter of the alphabet. This resulted in 26 interesting interviews with science journalist Jim Jansen, followed by an astonishing 26 columns by his brother, comedian Dolph Jansen (with an occasional insight that may surprise scientists for generations to come). With contributions from, among others, Robbert Dijkgraaf, Marcel Levi, Ad Vingerhoets, Ionica Smeets, Andrea Mayer and Ivo van Vulpen. On topics such as: Antarctica, double stars, road sickness, the theory of everything and xenophobia.
