Come and meet your cells in a fun interactive activity session exploring DNA. Cells in our bodies contain DNA which encodes the information required for cells to grow. Find out the common ways in which DNA can be damaged, the diseases this can lead to and how you can best protect your DNA from damage.
The activity is led by Hannah Crane and Arwa Abugable from the Department of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology.
