Previous Next / Genetics of Taste is the first community scientist-driven human genetics lab in the country Humans are 99.9% genetically identical. The 0.1% is what makes us different—in ways you can see, and in ways you can’t. The Genetics of Taste team studies how these small differences in our DNA have a huge impact on the way we taste. Curious? Watch in real life! Peek into our lab 364 days a year. We are located in the back of the award-winning exhibition Expedition Health, on Level 2 of the Museum. The Genetics of Taste research is funded in part by a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) from the Institute of General Medical Sciences at the National Institutes of Health (R25OD021909).
