In this Science Cafe, Prof. R Sowdhamini of NCBS will take us on a journey: From Genomes to Genes, and beyond…

Living organisms of all kinds require their genetic material - DNA or genome - in order to live, to perform, and to pass on genetic information to their progenies. Prof Sowdhamini will take you through how the genetic material translates into actual function through genes. She will discuss how different living organisms, whether they are bacteria, insects, plants or humans, are amazingly similar in their genomes, yet distinct in their identities. She will describe how we can choose an organism and study their genetic material for their unique identity.
