We’re bringing you some scientific ‘tails’ -literally – as we explore the genetics of dog breeds and behaviour.
We take a look at the life of JBS Haldane, whose work, writing and dominant personality made him one of the most interesting characters of 20th century genetics.
We a look at the biological changes that underpin ageing, and how we can use this knowledge to live longer, healthier lives.
We take a look at the history of mRNA, the development of mRNA vaccines and how they’ve been pressed into service at breakneck speed to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic.
In this episode we’re taking a look at the story and the characters behind one of the most transformative – and ubiquitous – techniques in modern molecular biology: the polymerase chain reaction.
In this episode we bring you an in-depth interview with Dr Eric Green, director of the US National Human Genome Research Institute and one of the key instigators of the Human Genome Project, to talk about the past, present and future of human genomics.
In this episode we’re taking a road trip from Philadelphia to Baltimore, exploring stories of chromosomal cut-and-paste, cancer cures and Henrietta Lacks’ incredible cancer cells.
In this episode, sponsored by Thermo Fisher Scientific, we’re taking a look at how genomic technologies are transforming cancer care – now and in the future, and the importance of making sure that these advances are available to all.
In this episode we’re going back to the very beginning, telling the stories of the midwives of the field of developmental genetics, two talented researchers whose work helped to reveal the secrets of life in its very earliest stages: Hilde Mangold and Salome Gluecksohn-Waelsch.
In the latest episode of Genetics Unzipped, Dr Kat Arney takes a look at the progress that’s been made in tackling rare genetic disorders (and the challenges that remain) and we hear from a prenatal genetic counsellor about how new tests are helping people carrying genetic variations make decisions about starting a family.
