Genetics Week, an annual week-long activity that will be conducted this year from October 22 to October 26, promotes genetics by conducting an exhibit about the chosen theme and disseminating relevant information about the field through its activities.
With the theme, “Changing Seasons: Deciphering the Periodic Patterns of Gene Expression”, The UPLB Genetics Society will feature how the seasons are actually linked to our genes. It aims to explain that there are genes that are actively expressed only in a particular season. Some of those genes can affect few cell processes, making a significant influence in our body.
According to researchers, out of 22, 822 genes they tested in their study, the activity of the 5,136 genes differs from the rest depending on the season. It was observed that there are genes active only duri…
