For geneticist Eric Wieschaus the development of a fruit fly embryo is ‘a beautiful and mysterious process’. In this DVD he tells the story of:
how he became absorbed by ‘the problem of the embryo’
– how an audacious plan to identify all the genes driving early development lead to ground-breaking discoveries, and a Nobel Prize

- An inspiring story for any student interested in science (a great resource for Careers counsellors!)
- As an account of classic genetics research, a valuable resource for any Biology or Genetics Department
The DVD contains two versions:
Condensed version (28 min): suitable for secondary students.
Full interview (67 min): includes a more detailed discussion of the ground-breaking fruit fly research that lead to a Nobel Prize.
