The Earth’s climate is changing. In fact, it has always been changing. What is different now is the speed...
Published by the Wellcome Trust, the 'Big Picture' explores issues around biology and medicine. In recent years, great progress has been made in genome sequencing and understanding the huge amount of data produced. Our genes play a key part in making us who we are, but how can science help us understand our genetic...
