This week Dr Andy, Dr Fifi and Dr Shane welcome guests from Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research. Dr Rachel Burt discusses her work on the connection between genetics and complex diseases such as hearing loss and David Rigler talks about his investigations into the details of how the malaria virus is able to invade red blood cells. Dr Fifi looks at the huge number of bacterial cells contained in the human body and a research project to catalog these bacterial colonies. We also talk about South Australia's progress in utilising geothermal energy, the current microscopy feature in Nature and the link between musical ability and the genes related to social bonding.For more information, visit us at http://einsteinagogo.net/
