Win a Copy of ‘Mutants: On Genetic Variety and the Human Body’

I'm Won!

The last few weeks of growth and engagement on the Rockstar Anthro blog, Twitter and Facebook have been AMAZE-BALLS!!

I wanted to find a way to say thank you for being awesome, sharing the content and giving feedback! So, I decided to giveway a copy of a book that I read for my thesis- Mutants: On Genetic Variety and the Human Body by Armand Marie Leroi

If you haven’t had a chance to read it, it is a fantastic and interesting book that connects culture and myth to science and anatomy. It’s a really intelligent and enjoyable read, and I’d love to share a copy!

So, I’m going to leave a trivia question and ALL the names of people that provide the correct answers will be put in a drawing for a chance to win a copy of the book! You have all day to answer the question and the drawing will happen on Tuesday evening and announced Wednesday morning!

Thank you all again for your continued support! Go forth and science!

Here’s the trivia question:

Why are male mutation rates higher than female?

Good luck!

  1. Here’s my answer, if it’s not too late – Male mutation rates are higher because of the considerable number of cell division events in their germ cells (cells that eventually produce gametes – in this case, sperm) relative to females, as they produce sperm daily. Conversely, females are born with the number of eggs they will have for a lifetime.
