This week’s blog post has been delayed while I participate in ‘I’m A Scientist – Get Me Out Of Here!’ a science communication competition in which schoolkids batter one with questions about science and life as a scientist. It’s been great fun but quite intense! Here are a couple of my favourite questions so far and my answers to them (pretty much all of which are about gene therapy):

“What is the weirdest thing you can do to a human using different DNA?” 

“What would the ‘perfect’ zombie virus be capable of doing? Would it be possible?

 “Is it possible to have mutants like X-Men???”

“Is animal testing needed in science?”

“Can you genetically mutate a pig and make it green?”

Find me in the Bioinformatics zone! Blogging should resume next week!
