99.9% of the human genome is identical among individuals. The other 0.1% makes us biologically unique. Sometimes the difference between two traits can be traced to a single chemical change in our DNA. In this hands-on workshop we will explore the genetics of perception and test our own DNA for a bitter taste receptor. Recommended for ages 14-adult.

This event is part of the San Diego Wet Lab’s science workshop series.  Science workshops are held every 1st Saturday and 3rd Saturday at 3pm at the La Jolla Library.   Please check the La Jolla library events page for location details and changes in the upcoming schedule.
