Posted by Kat Arney, on 13 January 2022
In the first episode of a new season of Genetics Unzipped, the Genetics Society podcast, presenter Kat takes a trip back to the 1950s to find out how one of the world’s greatest minds – Alan Turing – revealed the maths behind some of the deepest mysteries of life, from the patterning of stripes on a zebra to the spots on a leopard, and even the formation of bones in your own body.
