The Human Genome - What kind of Nut Job designed this!?
Inside every sperm and egg are 23 long strings of DNA. This DNA makes your Genome, which contains a lot of information, like a book of three billion letters. This amazing information storage system has been evolving for billions of years. We used it when we were single-celled blobs, multi-celled blobs, when we evolved into fish, reptiles, happy furry mammals and when we decided to become apes. You’d think our genome would be pretty darn amazing after all this evolving, wouldn’t you? Well, it’s not. It's a terrible mess. In this session, I’ll try and describe just how bad your genome really is.
