S450: DNA and Genomes in Rainstorm Spring 2020 (May. 30 - 31, 2020)
Everything you ever wanted to know about DNA. From: the basic chemistry of the molecule, to the discovery and biology of the gene, to the regulation of gene expression, to how a genome can direct the formation of a human, to viruses, to viroids, to incredibly rare inherited diseases, to crazy DNA facts, to how to manually engineer entire organisms. Yep. Everything about DNA that I (a DNA fanatic) can think to squeeze into an hour. It's going to be a crazy journey.
