At the next Secret Science Club, developmental biologist Ruth Lehmann explores the mysterious lives of cells and their role in reproduction. She asks:
--What's up in the embryo? How and when do germ cells form?
--In what ways are these "immortal" cells radically different from other cells in the body?
--How do germ cells get romanced into making eggs and sperm? Is there a matchmaking molecule?
