Interrogating the human instruction manual: predicting the diseases hidden within our DNA

Dr Katie Snape (Consultant in Cancer Genetics)
The ~5 million genetic changes we carry in our genome make us all unique individuals – influencing our height, weight, hair and skin colour and millions of other bodily characteristics. Some of these changes will also influence what diseases we develop, whether our children might have a genetic health condition, if we might catch a certain bug or react badly to a painkiller. In this talk we will consider how we find and act on genetic changes important to our health and how much do we really want to know about the secrets within our DNA.

Virology: the good, the bad and the indifferent

Dr David Clark (Postgraduate Researcher)
David Clark tells us about his work in virology looking at how viruses can be useful, how they can be bad, and how they are changing with society and the climate
