The team had a great time demonstrating CSynth to the public for the first time at New Scientist Live in September at The ExCel, London. Using two 65″ V652 touchscreens generously supplied by NEC, the team used data from red blood cells and white blood cells to show how the physical structure of a specific region of DNA changes between different types of cells. Over 20,000 tickets were sold for the event, and attendees of all ages were fascinated by the software and the science. Find out more about how the team got on in this blog.
