Researchers from RDM kick off a week-long science extravaganza today at The Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition.

The team will be exhibiting a unique blend of genetics and virtual reality on their stand, ‘DNA Origami: How do you fold a genome?’

The team are one of 22 exhibits at the festival – a celebration of science and innovation. They will be taking visitors through the intricate world of DNA folding, using virtual reality and hands-on games to share their research into gene regulation. You can learn more about the DNA Origami exhibit here.

A huge thanks to all of the Working Group who have worked so hard to put the exhibit together and to all our volunteers (60 from across the department) who will be inspiring the public this week!
