Jeans, whose Genes?

A play raising awareness of genomics and the impact of genetic disease that often runs unaware within families from Black and Minority Ethnic backgrounds has been developed by the Yorkshire and Humber NHS Genomic Medicine Centre in collaboration with Space 2.

Mixing humour, personal story and science, ‘Jeans, whose Genes?’ explores the specific concerns of harder to reach communities using the analogy of mobile telephone and internet technology to demonstrate life-changing or enhancing possibilities in scientific developments to improve healthcare.

The play can be viewed via the NHS Genomics website at
