Why are tumours more likely to develop in some tissues than others? And will low doses of radiation increase your risk of cancer, even without damaging DNA? We tackle the Big Questions about the Big C.
We bring you a selection of our favourite bits from the year so far that you might have missed.
020 Sex and Death

020 Sex and Death

2019-08-1500:30:03

In this episode from our centenary series exploring 100 ideas in genetics, we’re telling tales of sex and death, and exploring the very darkest side of genetics - eugenics.
We take a trip back into the past to discover the origins of ancient human populations, and into the future to explore the realities of personal genome sequencing.
We’re 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, with the help of Sir Paul Nurse and some fruity DNA cocktails.
