Coded for Success

Secondary ProgramsOnsite & Outreach

Are we coded for success? This program investigates the link between genetics and sporting success.

Students will use cutting edge technologies to screen athletes and maximise individual sporting success by matching genetic profiles to sports performance. The link between gene products and specialised cells will be examined as students explore the functionality of various cell types and the impact of these on sporting success.

Students will use gel electrophoresis to unlock the secrets of mystery athletes and gain a better understanding of the role our DNA plays in sporting success and injury.
