The X-Axis Factor: Physics vs Biology

'Physics has done more for biology than biology has done for biology' - that's the item up for debate as Science Gallery Leonardos Aoife McLysaght and Shane Bergin face-off at Science Gallery's first 'X-Axis Factor'.

Help us decide whether or not physicists have done more to further our understanding of biology than biologists have. We'll be using a real-time voting system to keep track of who is winning the argument, so we need you there to settle the argument once and for all!
