Dr. Cynthia Saloma during an episode of the TV program, Matanglawin last June 23, 2019 elaborates the rationale behind polycephaly (condition of having more than one head) in animals like the snapping turtle.
GenomeTV is the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) collection of video resources. A wide variety of videos is available, from lectures, to news documentaries, to full video collections of meetings that tackle the research, issues and clinical applications of genomic research.
October 1, 2015 marked the 25th anniversary of the launch of the Human Genome Project. To commemorate this anniversary in a fashion that showcases the rich history of the Human Genome Project and the field of genomics over the last quarter-century, the NHGRI History of Genomics Program is hosting a seminar series entitled “A Quarter Century after the Human Genome Project’s Launch: Lessons Beyond the Base Pairs.”
Winner of the Royal College of Science Union Science Challenge 2013 Video Competition — to create a video for the general public to explain a science topic of choice in an engaging way.
The living world runs on genomic software – what Dawn Field and Neil Davies call the ‘biocode’ – the sum of all DNA on Earth. In Biocode, they tell the story of a new age of scientific discovery: the growing global effort to read and map the biocode, and what that might mean for the future.

The field of medicine is changing rapidly, and Genomic Medicine is at the forefront of that change.
Most researchers believe genomics is the key to dealing with cancer, heart disease, diabetes and more. Since much of the research that is done at UC Berkeley is basic scientific research, the field of genomics is heavily studied on campus.
Ever since a monk called Mendel started breeding pea plants we’ve been learning about our genomes. In 1953, Watson, Crick and Franklin described the structure of the molecule that makes up our genomes: the DNA double helix. Then, in 2001, scientists wrote down the entire 3-billion letter code contained in the average human genome.
The Secret of Our Lives: The Human Genome Project –
Issues of genetics and DNA are constantly cropping up in the news from food production and health, to legal cases and ethics. We hear about DNA in movies like Jurassic Park and X-men, we learn bits and pieces about it from TV shows like Dexter and and CSI, but what exactly is DNA, and how does it work?
