December 2012- Liveblogging at Nobel Week Dialogue, Stockholm – #nwd12

The theme for the 2012 Nobel Week Dialogue was The Genetic Revolution and its Impact on Society, a choice partly inspired by the fact that 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of the award of the 1962 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine to Francis Crick, James Watson and Maurice Wilkins for their discovery of the molecular structure of DNA. I was invited to liveblog at the conference as part of a great team of writers.
