Posted on: Mon 23 Oct 2017

The impact that our genetic make up has upon our identity and health is often taken for granted but La Trobe University’s Professor Jenny Graves has dedicated her entire adult life to researching this field of science.

From discovering new genes to predicting the decline of the male Y chromosome, Professor Graves’ work has transformed our knowledge of how humans have evolved and function.

Professor Graves joined Tom and Ian to chat about her research, the importance of genes and the instability of the Y chromosome.
