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?

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.
We seek to appoint an ambitious Research Associate to work on a research project elucidating a signalling pathway governed by the imprinted genes Dlk1 and Grb10. The pathway regulates fetal growth, lean to adipose body proportions and energy homeostasis, with relevance to growth disorders, obesity and diabetes. The successful candidate will use mouse genetic, biochemical and cell biology[…]
In this episode from our series exploring 100 ideas in genetics, we’re entering the glamorous world of modelling, meeting the supermodels… of science. We’re taking a look at some of the field’s top models – the eclectic collection of organisms that have been put to work in the lab to reveal the secrets of biology.[…]
In the latest episode of Genetics Unzipped, Kat Arney is exploring some more of the leading 100 ideas in genetics. She’s been digging around in the genetic vegetable patch in search of flavourful GM tomatoes, chunky onion genomes and Mendelian peas. Available on Apple podcasts/iTunes, Spotify and all good podcast apps, and online at GeneticsUnzipped.com If you[…]
In the latest episode of Genetics Unzipped, Kat Arney is reporting back from the Genetics Society’s Autumn meeting – Genotype to Phenotype to Fitness – asking whether street smart city-dwelling birds are genetically different from their country bumpkin relatives, how butterflies got their brightly patterned wings, and if today’s genetic research would have blown Darwin’s mind.[…]
