You share 99.9% of your genetic code with every other human on earth

PRESENTED ON MAY 24, 2017
IN LONDON @ VOL 14

Did you know that you share 99.9% of your genetic code with every other human on earth. This leaves just 0.1% of your genes which make you.. you. 

In this PechaKucha given by Iona Inglesby, as part of Clerkenwell Design Week 2017, Iona tells us the tale about how she established her company called Dot One which analyses part of this 0.1% to create prints and textiles personalised to you on a molecular level.

Qu’est ce qui influence votre santé ? - What influences your health ?

BY FRANÇOIS VAN LISHOUT
@ VOL 1 ON NOV 20, 2014

Dans cette vidéo, je parlerai tout d’abord de mes recherches sur les facteurs génétiques jouant un rôle dans des maladies complexes telles que le cancer, l’asthme, le diabète et la maladie d’Alzheimer. On peut espérer que d’ici une dizaine d’années, le médecin pourra prédire sur base de vos gènes, quel traitement est le plus adapté dans votre cas. En attendant d’en arriver là, vous pouvez dès aujourd’hui faire quelque chose pour votre santé, notamment en faisant du sport régulièrement. Je montrerai comment la course à pied a changée ma vie et donnerai des conseils pour pratiquer ce sport correctement. En effet, beaucoup de gens abandonnent cette activité à cause de problèmes de genoux. Ceux-ci peuvent pourtant être évité en faisant principalement attention à trois choses : sa technique de course, porter des chaussures adaptées et écouter son corps (notamment, ne pas vouloir en faire trop du jour au lendemain).

 

In this video, I will first talk about my research activities, which focuses on genetic factors influencing complex diseases like cancer, asthma, diabetes and Alzheimer disease. We can expect that in about ten years, doctors will be able to predict, based on your genes, which treatment is best indicated in your case. Before we get there, you can already start today doing something for your health, for instance by doing sports regularly. I will show how running changed my life and give some advices on how to do it right. Indeed, many people give up this activity because of knee problems. However, these can be avoided, mainly by paying attention to three things: the running technique, wearing appropriate shoes and listening to your body (in particular, avoiding doing too much from one day to the other).
