Kat: Hello, and welcome to Genetics Unzipped - the Genetics Society podcast, with me, Dr Kat Arney. In this episode from our series exploring 100 ideas in genetics, we’re digging around in the genetic vegetable patch - from flavourful tomatoes and chunky onion genomes to Mendel’s peas.

Every other episode of Genetics Unzipped, we’re going to be celebrating the Genetics Society’s centenary year by exploring some of the top 100 ideas in genetics. So sit back, and enjoy these three tales from the world of genes, genomes and DNA.
