25 June 2010
Presented by Meera Senthilingam.

This week, we discover the Human Heredity and Health in Africa Project, H3Africa, which hopes to utilise new genetic techniques to better understand disease in African populations. Also, how researchers have caught swine flu in the act of mutating, how migrating humans carried parasites out of Africa, a new gene therapy for HIV and why females are more likely to suffer the effects of stress. Plus, bomb proof curtains that expand when they're stretched!
