On 12 May, DMDD’s Tim Mohun visited the Open Data Institute in London to speak as part of their lunchtime seminar series. His talk, ‘Using open data to understand the causes of genetic birth defects’ was live-streamed and is now available to watch on the ODI’s YouTube channel.
For more information about the data described in Tim’s seminar, please visit https://dmdd.org.uk.
The function of most of our 20,000 genes is currently unknown, and we know even less about what happens if each gene has a mutation. In ‘clinical spotlight’ feature for the Winter edition of Rare Revolution Magazine , the DMDD and IMPC consortia talk about the role mouse embryo phenotyping plays in understanding the genetic basis of rare disease, and the efforts to make their data freely available to all.
Are you in London? Come along to the Crick and visit ‘How Do We Look?’.
This is the first of the institute’s public exhibitions, showcasing the wide range of scientific imaging that is already taking place here. It includes ‘A Voyage Through The Developing Heart’, an exhibit by DMDD’s Tim Mohun, which takes visitors on an audio-visual journey through the heart of a developing mouse embryo.
‘How Do We Look?’ is open Wednesday – Saturday until 4 February 2017 and is free to visit. For detailed opening times see the Crick’s public exhibitions webpage.
