Everything You Know About Genetics is Wrong

Saturday 14 April

But the recent revolution in DNA sequencing is revealing that it’s much more complicated. People are not peas – and even peas are not peas! From strange patterns of inheritance, to real life genetic superheroes living among us whose DNA provides them with resilience against serious illnesses, science writer and broadcaster Dr Kat Arney explains what we do and don't know about how our genes work.
