British Science Association Oxfordshire Branch's latest FREE SciBar event is 'In your DNA - the evolutionary journey of your genome'.

Our evolutionary heritage shared with primates, fish and even bugs is written in our DNA. These three billion letters of our ‘book of life’ were written by evolution over millions, if not billions, of years and are still revealing many surprises. Join us to hear Prof Chris Ponting (MRC Functional Genomics Unit, University of Oxford) shine a light on the ‘dark matter’ of our genome, and explain why 90 per cent of our genome serves no consequence.
