Where are the genes?
In this workshop, researchers from the Instituto de Biomedicina de Valencia (IBV) will explain and define what DNA is, its components and how the genome is organized into genes giving rise to the language that organizes genetic inheritance. Among the proposed activities, we will have games to explain the genetic diversity of living beings, the number of genes that different organisms have. Moreover, it will be explained why people, twins and false twins, resemble (or not). We will also have an activity to extract tomato DNA with homemade materials quickly.
