Cafe Scientifique - Nessa Carey on Epigenetics

*** Needs a host *** Any volunteers?

How can it be that almost all the cells in your body contain exactly the same genes, and yet the various cell types are all completely different? The answer lies in the new science of epigenetics, which answers this and many other questions.

From the effects of childhood trauma to the longevity of queen bees, and from why what you've learnt about evolution is only partly correct to how we will develop new cures for cancer, you'll never think of your genes in the same way again.

Biologist Nessa Carey is author of The Epigenetics Revolution, the fastest moving field in biology today.
