A 360 degree view of your genome

Explore your genome in 3D with this 360 degree video designed for Google Cardboard.

A genetic cause of autoimmune disease

Variants in the LRBA gene can have a devastating effect on our immune system, potentially leading to autoimmune disease.

Anatomy of a gene

Explore the key components of a gene – sections of DNA that are used to make proteins and other molecules that your body needs.

Copying, transferring and translating DNA

Your cells copy, transfer and translate the information in your DNA to keep your body functioning.

DNA and medications: pharmacogenomics

In this video, learn about how your DNA can affect your response to medications like codeine.

DNA and your health

In this video, learn more about variants and the types of information you can gain from having your genome sequenced.

DNA methylation

DNA methylation is one of the ways cells can control which genes are active, and at what time.

DNA, chromosomes and cells

The cells in your body contain DNA, packaged tightly within chromosomes.

Effects of a genetic variant

Why is it that the same genetic variant can have different effects for different people?

Filtering and analysing genomic variants

Genomic sequencing data needs to be processed through a series of manual and automated steps.

Genetic variants and disease

Differences in your DNA sequence contribute to your individuality, but can also cause diseases such as inherited heart conditions.

Genome editing with CRISPR-Cas9

CRISPR-Cas9 has been adapted for use as a cut-and-paste tool to edit DNA in the laboratory.

Genomic testing

Watch how sequencing, bioinformatics and analysis come together in the genomic testing process.

Genomics through a lifetime

A person’s genetic information generally doesn’t change over time, so the record that DNA sequencing provides can be accessed by a person at any stage of life

How DNA is passed from generation to generation

When a sperm and egg combine during fertilisation, they form a single cell that contains a person's full set of DNA
