Genetics Unzipped Podcast: Accidental Invention of Genetic Fingerprinting

Alec Jeffreys, a geneticist working at the University of Leicester, never intended to invent genetic fingerprinting. But at 9.05am on the morning of 10th September 1984, that’s exactly what he did.

Genetics Unzipped podcast: Stinky breath, superheroes and the ‘perfect genome’ – tackling myths and misconceptions about genomics

In the latest episode of Genetics Unzipped, the Genetics Society podcast, Kat Arney takes a look at some of the common myths and misconceptions surrounding genomics and genetic tests. Are mutations always bad? If you’re more like your mum, does that mean you’ve inherited more of her genes? And is there such a thing as a perfect genome?
