What goes in, must come out! Join us to find out about plasmid-hopping, baby screening, and what your poo says about you. What’s that smell?

The Science of Smelling Poo

Dr Thomas Conley (Post Graduate Research Student and Gastroenterology Doctor)
Step into Professor Probert's lab, where we're on a mission to demystify the stinky world of poo. Ever wondered why certain foods leave a lingering odour? Or why you might feel discomfort after a meal? Using a variety of complex machines, not only can we tell you what you've eaten, but we can potentially tell you why certain foods give you pain and even whether you might have a serious bowel condition. Let's ditch the embarrassment and talk openly about the importance of faecal testing in maintaining overall wellness. Thought it was just 'number 2'? Prepare for a 'craptivating' surprise!

Genetic Mischief Makers: The Jumping Genes Saga

Prajwal Bharadwaj (PhD Student)
Jumping genes are powerful hitchhikers that inhabit DNA of all walks of life from microbes to humans. These rogue elements have the remarkable ability to rewire bacterial genomes providing boosts and superpowers to their hosts. Join me on this journey to unravel the secrets of these miniature genetic adventurers showcasing their quest for survival and self-interest within the world of bacteria. They are short snippets of DNA, but they can do so much! It's a story of intrigue, innovation, and evolution that's sure to leave you astounded by the tiny but mighty inhabitants of the bacterial world.

One Sequenced Every Minute

Chris Armitage (Pre-Reg Clinical Scientist in Genomic Medicine)
The Newborn Genomes Programme is an NHS study that will look at the advantages and challenges of analysing the complete genetic makeup of 100,000 healthy newborn babies. It aims to understand whether we can improve our ability to diagnose and treat rare genetic conditions that might affect children as they're growing up. We'll explore what the programme involves and think about some of the ethical issues it brings up together.
