Miguel Pita in conversation with Jesús Calero

From DNA to pandemic

Segovia 2020, 

The latest book by Miguel Pita, doctor in Genetics and Cell Biology, could not be more attuned to the present: A day in the life of a virus. This expert on how DNA influences our lives (his previous book was titled The DNA dictator. What genetics decides for you) brings to light certain aspects of the pandemic we are experiencing and how a small fragment of genetic material can put a whole civilization on edge in the XXI century. He talks with the journalist Jesús Calero, head of Culture at ABC newspaper.
