The Shape of your Genes: Using Supercomputers and Strawberries to Understand How DNA Works

Brown bag lunch with Dr. Karissa Sanbonmatsu of LANL


DNA is an information molecule that has the instructions to create your body, from conception to birth to adulthood, and also the instructions to keep your body running and to help fight viral infections such as COVID-19. Your cells have identical DNA sequences. Yet, brain cells have vastly different shapes than immune cells and work completely differently. We use supercomputers to help explain why this is true and will we perform a DNA extraction from strawberries to see DNA with the naked eye. Ask questions live or submit in advance at adoty@lanl.gov.
