Description

The Human Genome: More Complex Than We Imagined
Wed 12 Dec from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM

The human genome has about 20,000 protein-coding genes, around the same number as sea urchins or even tiny 1,000 celled worms. Where is the genetic data that programs our complexity? Professor John Mattick examines so-called “junk” DNA which contains most of the genetic differences between individuals and species.
