How can humans be so similar yet so different?

The Wet Lab is hosting a workshop Saturday, August 19th, at the La Jolla Riford Library from 3-5pm.

99.9% of the human genome is identical among individuals. The other 0.1% makes us biologically unique. Sometimes the difference between two traits can be traced to a single chemical change in our DNA. In this hands-on workshop we will explore the genetics of perception and test our own DNA for a bitter taste receptor. Recommended for ages 14-adult.
