This 12 episode series will use the research being done surrounding the current COVID-19 pandemic as a starting point before focussing on the wider wonders in the study of genetics. Why do viruses affect some people more than others? Where are we on the development of drugs and vaccines that will help to fight this and other viruses? What have we learnt from the human genome and how has it helped us to understand inherited traits and improve our medicines? What does the future hold for genetic research in both a scientific, and ethical, sense. This ground-breaking series will help us all to better understand the basic building blocks of the natural world.

New episodes every second Wednesday at 8:30pm.
