What would you do if someone gave you £4.65 million (that’s over US$9 million) to spend on genetics education? Well, you’d have a party of course! This party was to celebrate the official opening of the GENIE Centre of Excellence for teaching and learning at the University of Leicester. GENIE stands for Genetics Education Networking for Innovation and Excellence. There were the usual refreshments, and a few few short speeches. But mostly, we got to play with giant DNA, and have a good look at all the education and outreach materials GENIE has already produced.
