Discuss: Transmissible Tumours
« on: 25/05/2010 16:49:24 »
Cancers you can catch go under the Naked Scientists microscope this  week. We find out how a transmissible facial tumour is devastating devil  populations in Tasmania and also hear how the Human Papilloma Virus  (HPV) causes cancer. Also, Meera looks into the science of cervical  screening, and Ben and Dave reveal how carrots can help us to spot  cancer cells. Plus, biofuel hope from the burning bush plant, the battle  between Staphylococcus species, and the introduction of Synthia - the  first microbe with a genuinely synthetic genome.
