discover... DNATHE SCIENCE

DNA is responsible for the colour of your eyes, your susceptibility to disease, and every other characteristic that makes you who you are.

InsideOut investigates what DNA is, how it works, how it determines our characteristics and how we are using DNA technologies.
This area of discover is based on DNA: the molecule of life, an afternoon of lectures held at the Royal Institution to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the determination of the structure of DNA.
