The activity proposes a virtual tour of the human genome by using the UCSC Genome Browser ( We will walk around on our chromosomes, in sort of a google Maps of our genome. We will pick up some gene recently covered in newspapers or tv shows, and will see where they are located and what they look like. We will have chance to disclose many curiosities about our genome. In a video-guided lab (max 50, by reservation), participants will extract their own DNA.
