Our Genes, Ourselves


Our Genes Ourselves Podcast Thumb

In the past few decades, genetic testing and sequencing has gone from extraordinary to almost easy, allowing people unprecedented looks at their own genetic makeup. What can our genomes tell us about ourselves?

In this podcast, join Spencer Wells, geneticist and director of the Genographic Project from National Geographic and IBM; Rebecca Cann, cell biologist at the University of Hawaii; Dorothy Roberts, a professor of law and sociology at the University of Pennsylvania Law School; and Robert Darnell, physician and investigator at Rockefeller University, as they discuss the methods and implications of mapping our individual genomes. The discussion was moderated by Museum Curator of Entomology Rob DeSalle.

This program took place at the Museum on Wednesday, April 23, 2014.
