Ever wondered about the instructions for life? What is DNA made of and how does it work?

How does your DNA provide the unique recipe for building you? How can the same ingredients make both human beings and bananas?  What is it about DNA and inheritance that means we are different to our brothers and sisters - even though we have the same parents? Could cloning make an identical copy of a person? 

What questions do YOU want our expert to answer?

Join biochemist and DNA expert Annie Hodgson and discover why DNA is pivotal to our growth, reproduction and health.
