Curing HIV, advancing CRISPR therapies, predatory phages for superbug infections and advice for a healthy life
Edith Rebecca Saunders, the mother of British plant genetics
In this episode we’re getting our hands dirty by delving into the microbiome - the trillions of bacteria that live inside our guts.
We’re looking at mergers and acquisitions - but in a biological rather than a financial sense.
We dig into some of the mysteries surrounding the ultimate genetic disease: cancer.
A round-up of some of our favourite bits from the year so far.
We tell tales of sex, death, extinction and the darkest side of genetics.
We head back into the past to discover the origins of ancient populations, and into the future to explore the realities of personal genome sequencing.
Exploring the dark heart of the genome, untying nature’s shoelaces and looking back at the discovery of RNA splicing.
We celebrate 100 years of The Genetics Society in suitably scientific style
