From GM farm animals to embryonic stem cell research

bursting into the headlines. Genomics and Society: Todays Answers, Tomorrows Questions gives us a chance to examine the latest findings on how genomics - which embraces a whole range of biological processes from inheritance to development and beyond - is impacting on peoples lives.

The work of the ESRC Genomics Network spans the whole field - covering areas as diverse as plant genetics and issues around GM foods, embryonic stem cell research, health applications through biomedicine and gene therapy, and even creating new forms of life.

This landmark event marking the Networks transition to a new five-year phase of funding, gives the opportunity for a cross-fertilisation of ideas and healthy debate on the past, present and future roles of genomics in society.

Event: Todays Answers, Tomorrows Questions
