SciCafe: Flipping the Genetic Switch


SciCafe: Flipping the Genetic Switch

How and why do the same genes work differently in different people? What causes a gene to be turned “on” or “off” and how can that affect disease risk? In this SciCafe, join geneticist Tuuli Lappalainen from the New York Genome Center to understand how genetic variants shape how our genes are expressed, and how her lab is seeking to uncover the “rules” of human variation.

This SciCafe took place at the Museum on June 3, 2015.
