Thursday, September 27
7 p.m.
Our DNA tells us the color of our eyes, how tall we are, and even if we like broccoli. But does your DNA say everything about you? If one identical twin becomes an astronaut and the other a ballerina, does their biology change? Are they still identical? Epigenetics is the study of the various different switches that can turn parts of your DNA on and off. How your genetic code is read can cause very real differences in your life. This talk will discuss how epigenetics works, how it is researched, and how it is found in everyday life. We will also be touching on topics such as gene editing and biohacking. Come by for a stimulating, interactive discussion about some cutting-edge science! Register here or in Information Services.
