Featured Video: Chimeras and You

  • GEN brings you the best, most informative and/or entertaining biotech-related videos on the web!

    What is a chimera? Hank's told you about the Human Genome Project and epigenetics, and now he explains how one person may hold the DNA of two different people—whether that means the person ends up with both male and female reproductive organs, or that a child may not genetically appear to be his own mother's kid. Speaking of mothers, could your mom be a chimera? Hank tells us why it's more common than you'd think.
