Science Show: Read your DNA live!

Over the weekend Dr Joe Latimer, Dr Sarah Withers and Dr Ian Goodhead from The University of Salford will be at bluedot with their mobile lab. Find them to get swabbed and learn more about your DNA using ultra-modern DNA sequencing technology that can be found on the International Space Station!

During this show, the team will take to the stage to share what they’ve found over the weekend. Expect funny stories and silly anecdotes from the world of bacteria, lessons on why we should take care of our invisible friends, and why antibiotic resistance is a very real threat.

Suitable for all ages, but recommended for ages 10+.
