Fish and Flies in Medical Research

On Wednesday last week, Iwan and Emily from Sheffield University came to tell us about their work in the field of biomedical research. They explained to us  how studying fish and flies is helping people to develop medical techniques for humans! They brought in fish and flies for us to look at and taught us about how their genes are very similar to those of a human.

We then invented our own fish and flies based on different gene strings.
