Happy Halloween! We may not have tricks or treats here at TEDx, but we do have something really cool — a TEDx Talk on the bat genome!
Bats are a little spooky, but, biologically, they are pretty spectacular. For example, did you know that one fifth of all mammals are bats and bats are the only mammal that can fly?
As the director of The Centre for Irish Bat Research, Emma Teeling knows a lot about these fascinating creatures, and in the talk at TEDxDublin below, she shares her knowledge, revealing how the bat genome can actually give us great insight into ourselves.
Check out Teeling’s entire talk below:
