This Funzing Experience:

The language of genes has become common in the media. We know they make your eyes blue, your hair curly or your nose straight. We're told that genes control the risk of cancer, heart disease, alcoholism or Alzheimer's. The cost of DNA sequencing has plummeted from billions of pounds per genome to a few hundred, and gene-based advances in medicine hold huge promise.

But how do our genes actually make us who we are? With the help of cats with thumbs, fish with hips and wobbly worms, Kat will unpack some of the mysteries in our DNA and explain the latest thinking about how our genes work. This talk is aimed at the general public - no specialist knowledge required!

Venue: Jujus Bar & Stage, Brick Lane

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.
