54 Kings Street, CB11LN Cambridge, Cambridgeshire
What can your DNA actually say about you? Reading our genetic code is getting faster and cheaper. It’s changing how we might treat disease and explore our ancestry. But can your DNA tell you if you love/hate the taste of Marmite or are more partial to Malbec or a Merlot?
Join Patrick Short from Wellcome Sanger Institute to discuss potential applications of this technology and to distinguish wishful thinking from scientific fact.

Patrick is a final-year PhD student at the Wellcome Sanger Institute working with Dr. Matt Hurles on understanding the role of mutations outside of genes in severe developmental disorders. Patrick has also co-founded a startup called Heterogeneous that allows individuals to contribute their genetic data to different research projects with full control over how their data is used and who it is accessed by.

— This is a free and non-ticketed event.
Doors open at 18:45 so arrive early to avoid disappointment.
Starts at 19:00 and finish around 20:30.
Drinks and snacks will be available to purchase from the cafe.
