Behind the Genes: Our podcast talking about all things genomics

We've refreshed our podcast identity! Introducing Behind the Genes, previously known as The G Word. Join us every fortnight, where we cover everything from the latest in cutting-edge research to real-life stories from those affected by rare conditions and cancer. With thoughtful conversations, we take you behind the science. You can also tune in to our Genomics 101 explainer series which breaks down complex terms in under 10 minutes.

Behind the Genes is available to listen through all major podcast listening apps, such as iTunes, Spotify and Amazon Music. If you cannot find our podcast on your preferred app, let us know.
