Professor Steve Jones, FRS UCL Research Department of Genetics, Evolution and Environment

Snails are beautiful and decorative animals, with many species marked by patterns on the shell that differ from one individual to another. But why? Prof Jones has spent forty years trying to find out. It might seem a trivial question but it is at the heart of genetics: why is there inherited diversity in almost every creature? The answer, perhaps surprisingly, is also hinted at by some of our greatest artists.
