How and why do living organisms glow and what is the evolutionary meaning of glowing? Let's talk about the mysterious properties of some fish, insects and mammals, discuss fluorescence and bioluminescence.
Let's talk about genes, ancient animals, find out whether it is possible to clone mammoths and dinosaurs. We’ll discuss what DNA is made of and how this molecule is released from a living organism. We’ll figure out how the proteins in our body are built on the basis of DNA, and how they work. In the practical part, we will assemble a DNA molecule using a molecular constructor, decipher the sequence of the molecule on the genetic platform, and study the chromosomes under a microscope with a magnification of 400 times.Age: 12+
