Bright Sparks: DNA - "Like a paper chain of little men holding hands" - Aoife McLysaght


Dr. Shane Bergin talks to geneticist Aoife McLysaght about her research into DNA. In this short clip Aoife describes how genetics, and more specially DNA, physically connects us all as humans, and how that realisation sparked her passion to uncover those links. She talks about her current research and the discovery of a human specific gene in her lab.

Hear more from Aoife and many other talented scientists when the full series of Bright Sparks airs on RTE Radio 1 later this year.
