A Voice for Diversity in Science
Video

Only 17% of the English-language biographies on Wikipedia are about women – but the statistic won’t stay that low for long if Dr Jess Wade has her way. A passionate advocate for diversity in science, Jess balances her work as an award-winning physicist at Imperial College London with her role as a ‘Wikipedian’, creating and uploading the biographies of underrepresented groups in science.

Inside the Ant Lab: Mutants and Social Genes
Video

Social insects such as ants and bees often have complex societies, but understanding the genetics behind their social interactions can be difficult due to their complex lifecycles. This lab in New York hopes to investigate the genetics of ant social behaviour by focussing on an unusual species: the Clonal Raider Ant.

RNA No Longer Lost in Translation
Video

"Stress granules" belong in the cellular toolbox of survival strategies. Proteins and RNA huddle together into membrane-less blobs when the cell is threatened, a mechanism which is also critical for proper maternal mRNA storage, synaptic plasticity, tumor progression and neurodegeneration. These previously invisible basic genetic processes have been captured for the first time, using fluorescence microscopy.
