Thanks to everyone who participated in the trivia question challenge! We have a winner!
The prize was a copy of Mutants: On Genetic Variety and the Human Body
I received 15 responses, but only 2 correct answers. However, some of the responses were so entertaining, I wanted to give a prize for creativity! However, I only have one book to giveaway!
The question was: “Why are male mutation rates higher than female?”
Greater number of germ cell divisions
- . All female germ cells (eggs) are formed by about five months of foetal development. Males however are continually producing germ cells (sperm).
- Any variation of this would have got you an entry to win! More giveaways coming soon!
- The winner also has an AMAZING blog that I want to encourage everyone to check out: http://omanbioarchaeology.wordpress.com/
