Prof. Andrew McAinsh - What the cell! How do your cells keep your chromosomes in order?
You and I are each built from several trillion cells and, remarkably, all these cells originate from one single cell – a fertilised egg. Each cell, including this first one, contains the entire blueprint for a human being. These instructions are encoded in your DNA and organised in packages called chromosomes. Life is only possible if we look after this DNA and ensure all cells contain the right amount. The wrong amount is associated with human diseases, including cancer. This evening we will explore the amazing nanoscale machines that make this possible, and how we may harness this knowledge to improve human health.
