Suitcase Exhibition

Genetic Disorders and Heredity is a suitcase-sized exhibition that explains what genetic disorders are and how we inherit them. With the help of interactive activities, colourful text panels, fun computer games and three-dimensional models, you will find out how humans inherit genetic disorders and learn about the different types of genetic disorders that can affect us. You'll also read about the amazing research Canadian scientists are doing to understand these diseases and discover new treatments and cures.

Don’t miss your chance to discover all the fun that can be crammed into a single suitcase!
