B5506: Can Your DNA Predict Your Future? in Splash Spring 2017 (Apr. 22 - 23, 2017)
Is it possible to predict all the diseases you will get the moment you are born? Do our eating habits and lifestyle choices really influence our health much? Find out in this class what modern genetics and medicine have to say about these exciting questions and learn what knowing our DNA sequence really tells us about ourselves. BONUS: Students will have the option of finding out their phenotype/genotype for a gene involved in tasting bitterness!
