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.
In the latest episode of Genetics Unzipped, Kat Arney brings you exclusive excerpts from her new book Rebel Cell, exploring where cancer came from, where it’s going, and how we might beat it.
In the latest episode of Genetics Unzipped, Kat Arney looks at the ancient war between our genes and the pathogens that infect us.
We find out if more than DNA passes on to the next generation, whether Darwin was wrong, and how to pimp your genome. Plus, meet the Mickey Mouse Mice.
We discover how researchers are bringing discoveries about the underlying genetic faults that cause eye diseases all the way through to game-changing gene therapies designed to save sight.
