023 Mergers and Acquisitions
Kat: Hello, and welcome to Genetics Unzipped - the Genetics Society podcast, with me, Dr Kat Arney.
In this episode from our centenary series exploring 100 ideas in genetics, we’re looking at mergers and acquisitions - but in a biological rather than a financial sense. We find out what happens when two cells decide to move in together, unpack the history of genetic engineering and bleat on about the story of Dolly the Sheep.
Before we start, just a reminder that you can find us on Twitter @geneticsunzip or by email, firstname.lastname@example.org - we know you’re listening all over the world, so come say hi! Also please do take a moment to rate and review us on Apple podcasts, if that’s how you’re listening - it really does make a difference and helps more people discover the show. Thank you.
Moving in together

That’s all for now. We’ll be back next time taking a look at the genetics and health effects of the microbiome - the collection of bacteria that live in your gut.
