WHAT IS DNA, AND HOW CAN WE USE IT IN SCIENCE?
This webinar is an introduction to my later webinar about bear poop (yes, poop indeed!). DNA can tell us so much about bears (and humans too).
The talk will consist of an introduction to DNA. I will present general information about its properties and purpose in our body, i.e. its size, its chemical structure, its information content. Then I will give a short description about how the DNA works in our bodies, before introducing you to the process by which DNA is utilized for scientific research. In the end I will give an overview over what type of research use DNA and the information contained in it.
