More about

Genetics in Cambridge includes some of the early (re)discoverers of the mechanisms of inheritance such as Bateson and Punnett, the great statistician and evolutionary biologist Fisher, and more recently the discovery of embryonic stem cells by Sir Martin Evans and colleagues. Current interests include cell division (important in development, cancer and regeneration), structure and regulation of the genome, neurodegeneration, and the mechanisms of present-day evolution. The Department shares a common interest in using genetic approaches to understand biology, in a multidisciplinary context that includes imaging, biochemistry, computing, and high-throughput genomics, often with colleagues elsewhere in Cambridge and beyond. The Department is a private educational institution. If you wish to see a particular painting, please contact the collection.
