Towards Dolly: a century of animal genetics in Edinburgh
31 July - 31 October 2015
Main Library Exhibition Gallery
Edinburgh has played a vital role in the science which tells us who we are – genetics.
Dolly the sheep is a scientific icon and a household name. However, she is also a single chapter in a wider story which spans a century. Pioneers at Edinburgh and Roslin have embedded concepts like genetic engineering and stem cell research in the public consciousness, stimulating debate and revolutionising science and medicine.
This exhibition celebrates the individuals and institutions who made, and continue to make, extraordinary advances in animal and human health. It will take you on a journey ‘Towards Dolly’ and beyond.
