What is DNA, and how much of our life is predetermined by genes? In this episode, three segments explore this complex and controversial field. Segments include the following:
  • Discovery Magazine: Genetics: Humans and flies may be more closely related than you ever imagined: so close, in fact, that scientists use flies as proxies for humans to study the genetic component of long-term memory.
  • The Riddle of Life: See the DNA molecule up close and learn how the genetic code can be used to encode messages!
  • Mapping the Human Genome: See how scientists decoded the riddle of human life in the Human Genome Project.
