Babraham Institute scientists Myriam Hemberger, Laura Woods and Christel Krueger joined colleagues from the Wellcome Trust – Medical Research Council Cambridge Stem Cell Institute; Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute; Wellcome Trust / Cancer Research UK Gurdon Institute at Murray Edwards College, Cambridge, on Tuesday 21st March 2017.

The event description in the Cambridge Science Festival programme was:

The same script can result in many different productions of a play. Increasingly, we are coming to understand DNA in the same way. Join a panel of epigenetics researchers to find out what we are learning about the world beyond DNA and what remains to be discovered.

An interactive panel discussion was followed by wine, nibbles and a chance to informally chat with researchers. This event is co-hosted by four leading bio-medical research institutes: Wellcome Trust – Medical Research Council Cambridge Stem Cell Institute; Wellcome Genome Campus; Wellcome Trust / Cancer Research UK Gurdon Institute; and the Babraham Institute.
