Take a trip in a genetic time machine, discovering the origins of ancient human populations and exploring the future of personal genome sequencing.
In this episode we’re celebrating the Genetics Society’s centenary with past president and Nobel laureate, Sir Paul Nurse.
We’re unravelling the story of the double helix, cracking the triplet code, and sketching out a Punnett square.
Get lost in the Valley of Hybridisation in the Genetics Society’s medal-winning garden at the Chelsea Flower Show.
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 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.
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.[…]
Every fortnight, between the British Library and the St Pancras station, inside a wooden room in the ground floor of the Francis Crick Institute, four scientists discuss the present breakthroughs in science. Unlike other discussions happening in this room, this one will reach many other Spanish-speaking people around the world. We are talking about “En[…]
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[…]
