In collaboration with Outer Space | Inner Space and Leisure and Culture Dundee, The Centre of Gene Regulation and Expression at the School of Life Sciences presents “Guardians of the Genome”:

Our genome or DNA is a complete set of instructions to make all living things. If a mistake occurs in this set of coded instructions it can cause diseases. Come along and meet our scientists who will explain how the code works and how it is taken care of.

Take a dive into the core of a cell in our Virtual Reality Game setup and repair faulty DNA using rocket gloves and a molecular toolbox.
