Personal Genomics- A Matter of Taste: Workshop at the La Jolla Riford Library

August 19, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

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.

personal genomics taste

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.

To attend, please find the event on the library events page and register there!
