It's ten years since the first draft of the human genome was published and Plus is joining in the celebrations with a package on the maths of genes. We try and solve the genome puzzle, model cell suicide, and find out why DNA evidence in court isn't as straightforward as it seems. Genes aside, we assess small but lethal risks, create some fractal music, encounter a two box paradox, and find out how to win with coins and cards.
