25 - Mutation
This week, weâ€™re joined by Trace Dominguez from the YouTube channel Uno Dos of Trace to talk about genetic mutations! Tiny changes in an organismâ€™s DNA sequence can lead to big variations or absolutely nothing. Itâ€™s just a roll of the dice! So what mutations have shown up in modern humansâ€”different bones, livers, or even eyeballs? What is â€œforeign DNAâ€ and where does it even come from? And can anybody name as many X-Men as Sam? Â Follow us on Twitter @SciShowTangents, where weâ€™ll tweet out themes for upcoming episodes and you can ask the science couch questions!
