What makes us human? Catalonia's role in biggest ever primate genome study
09/06/2023The most comprehensive investigation into primate genomes, recently published, shed new light on features of primate evolution, human disease and biodiversity conservation. Filling the Sink chats to some of the researchers in Catalonia that played their part in this groundbreaking international study: Tomàs Marquès-Bonet from the Institute of Evolutionary Biology at Pompeu Fabra University, and Ivo Gut, director of CNAG, the National Center for Genomic Analysis. This week's Catalan phrase is "fer el mico". Literally, "to do the monkey" it means to act silly, horse around, monkey around. Presented by Lorcan Doherty with Cristina Tomàs White and Kate Naessens.
