Genetics

The study of the fundamental unit of our biological makeup: our DNA, and how it expresses proteins that influence our appearance, behavior, and biological processes.

Gene TAS2R38 and Supertasters star
Do you cringe at the taste of Brussels sprouts? Do artificial sweeteners taste sickeningly sweet? You may be a supertaster. A mutation on the TAS2R38 gene, a marker gene for taste hypersensitivity, yields increased sensitivity to bitter tasting compounds. So, what's your taster status?

Science Experiment Taster Status star
Do you know your taster status? Using PTC strips and blue food coloring, you can find out! Do these fun science experiments to see if you are an average taster or a super taster. What's your status?
