Witness the fitness

In the latest episode of Genetics Unzipped, Kat Arney is reporting back from the Society’s Autumn meeting – Genotype to Phenotype to Fitness – asking whether street smart city-dwelling birds are genetically different from their country bumpkin relatives, how butterflies got their brightly patterned wings, and if today’s genetic research would have blown Darwin’s mind.

Plus, an interview with the new president of The Genetics Society, Professor Laurence Hurst, about his vision for the coming centenary year and beyond.
