This Funzing Experience:

We’ve been shaping animals for years...and we have all benefited from this.

Even before we figured out how it all worked, we’ve been selectively breeding animals so that each new generation looked, functioned and behaved increasingly how we’d like them to.

We now know that we’ve been influencing the genetic composition of these animals to create these changes.

Join us for an overview of selective breeding, and a look at some of the (simpler) genetic interactions that enable us to alter animal populations.

We will also be covering biological concepts such as species, evolution and hybridisation, and the ethical considerations around how we manipulate animal genetics to create animals we find more appealing.


Venue: Rotate

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.

Funzing Talks are here to re-invent your evenings, creating an exciting alternative to having a drink in your local pub or bar. Funzing Talks pull together an impressive array of leading entrepreneurs, intellectuals, bright thinkers and incredible individuals to inspire your evenings and expand your mind.

Held in a carefully selected range of intimate spaces, Funzing Talks is the ultimate boredom-buster.

Delve into a totally new subject and challenge your perspectives with like-minded, equally curious people. It's time to try something different - you never know where it may take you.
