Watch these videos to discover some of the Museum's molecular projects and how the results are used across the world.
The Museum's DNA laboratories support a huge variety of research projects. From helping us understand the spread of disease to studying the impact of climate change, the rapidly developing techniques used by Museum scientists are giving us a huge insight into the diversity of life.
Join plant researcher Harald Schneider in this video as he reveals the tools he uses to help him understand how plants evolved and the impact of climate change on plant evolution.
In this video insect researcher Shazia Mahamdallie tells us how DNA techniques are helping us understand the spread of a tropical disease called leishmaniasis.
Watch plant researcher Juliet Brodie in this video as she talks about her molecular work on the Museum's coralline algae collection.
Join Alfried Vogler in this video as he explains how his research is helping to build a tree of life, which will allow us to understand the living world in more depth.
In this video find out how molecular techniques are helping us understand the spread of the disease myiasis and how they can help with control programmes in the future.
