The genii in our cells: how cells change and remember what they are

How cells decide to switch genes "on" and "off" during the development of cell types.

Hear how individual cells make the decision to switch genes "on" and "off" during the development of specific cell types and how they "remember" this decision as they divide and create new cells that are the same type as themselves. Exploring this so-called epigenetic memory has led to the ground-breaking discovery of a previously hidden layer of information storage. Professor Festenstein will demystify epigenetics for our audience of Friends.
