Get lost in the Valley of Hybridisation in the Genetics Society’s medal-winning garden at the Chelsea Flower Show.
We take the train with William Bateson, seek the secrets of snapdragons and build an army of MinIONs.

In this episode of Genetics Unzipped we talk to pioneering geneticist George Church about his plans for the ‘Zero Dollar Genome.
Everyone knows that humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes. But back in the 1930s, the correct answer would have been 24. So what happened?
In this episode of Genetics Unzipped we ask, what would have happened if Darwin had read Mendel? And what if they’d been on Twitter?
The Young Tunisian Researchers in Biology Network: Tunisia is suffering brain drain, especially post Tunisian-revolution (2011). Recent non-official reports say that over 90.000 senior quitted Tunisia since 2012, most of them are doctors, pharmacists and engineers. Aware of considerable role that may Tunisian scientist diaspora could play in the development of Tunisia in general and[…]
A fundamental question in biology is how cells communicate to fashion and repair complex biological structures and tissues. It is well established that cells communicate through biochemical cues. However, compelling evidence suggests that cells and tissues of all types use ion fluxes to communicate electrically as well. In addition, it is now clear that this[…]
In this episode from our series exploring 100 ideas in genetics, we’re telling the often-overlooked stories of four women who helped to shape the science of life: Esther Lederberg, Harriet Creighton, Tsuneko Okazaki and Martha Chase.
In this episode of Genetics Unzipped we have a very special interview with leading geneticist Mary-Claire King.
