Just confirmed! The Compatibility Gene. Daniel M Davis at @McrSciFest Mon 28 Oct 2013 6.30pm

The Compatibility Gene. A free Manchester Science Festival talk.

Mon 28 Oct 2013 6.30pm here in Blackwell’s.

Ever had a bad date or called off work with the worst cold in the world? Daniel M Davis tells a scientific adventure story set in a new field of genetic discovery – that of the crucial genes that define our relationships, our health and our individuality.

We each possess a similar set of around 25,000 human genes, yet a tiny, distinctive cluster of these genes plays a disproportionately large part in how our bodies work. Daniel, a foremost immunologist, argues these few genes hold the key to who we are as individuals, how we combat disease, how our brains are wired and even how likely we are to reproduce.

This event is free and will last an hour. No booking required. For all Manchester Science Festival events at Blackwell’s, click here.
