Episode 20 - Epigenome, DNA, and pineapple on pizza - with Chiara Facciotto


Welcome back to The Science Basement Podcast!

Our guest this week is Chiara Facciotto, PhD student at Biomedicum in Helsinki. She works on how epigenetics influences cancer response to therapy. Follow us to discover what the epigenome is and how it relates to our DNA, and why it is a very bad idea to put pineapple on your pizza!

…and, of course, it wouldn't be an episode of the TSB podcast without a science anecdote. This time we talk about how living with your mother-in-law can have effects on your offspring!


Music by Havelocke
