9 Creative Commons Computation and genetics Resistance to drugs in bacteria can be aquired by swapping genes between individual bacteria. Computer programs developed by Dr Iqbal enable doctors to predict which antibiotics will be met with drug resistance, enabling the selection of the right drug. Zamin Iqbal 07 Jan 2016

11 The nature of the beast: Genetic evidence for Yeti, Bigfoot and other mystery creatures Bryan Sykes, Professor of Human Genetics, describes how he located and analysed as many DNA samples as possible with links to the Yeti. In doing so, he found himself entering a strange world of mystery and sensationalism, fraud and obsession. Bryan Sykes 10 Jul 2015
12 The Avian Genome Explosion The ASC Trinity Term Lecture delivered by Professor Tom Gilbert, exploring the analysis of bird genomes and evolution. Tom Gilbert 27 May 2015
13 "Origins" Part 3 - Origins of Human Life Drs Suzannah Williams and Dagan Wells explore the secrets and processes behind human fertilisation. Sperm and eggs must face huge challenges before they even meet. After fertilisation, they go on to form a small ball of cells with huge potential. Suzannah Williams, Dagan Wells, Chris Lintott 07 Oct 2014
14 Creative Commons DNA USA: a genetic portrait of America Based on his latest book, Bryan Sykes, professor of human genetics at Oxford University, gave a public lecture at Wolfson College exploring the rich ancestral tapestry of the American nation. Bryan Sykes 28 May 2014
15 Epigenetics and New Anti-Cancer Treatments At the interface of chemistry, biology, and medicine, Cyrille Thinnes, a DPhil student in the Schofield Group, shares his research into the next generation of anti-cancer treatments. Cyrille Thinnes 19 Jul 2013
16 Another case of heart trouble Oxford Sparks presents a look at how a single change in DNA can cause the human heart to go wrong. Find out more and read about the science behind the animation at www.oxfordsparks.net/animations/heart. Hugh Watkins, Anna Michell 15 Apr 2013
17 Creative Commons Manipulating plant genes - how do you actually do it? We often hear in the news about GM (Genetic Modification or Manipulation) but what does it actually involve? Liam Dolan 10 Jan 2012
18 Creative Commons The gene garden The spectacular variety of colour and growth form seen in our gardens is the result of the action of thousands of genes operating in pathways and networks. Hugh Dickinson 09 Jan 2012
