      My favourite type of experiment is sequencing DNA, that’s where I use a special machine to read people’s DNA like a book. That way, we can read through the DNA to try to find changes (also called mutations) which may be causing disease. These experiments can take a week or two to do, and the amount of data/DNA that we need to look through afterward is really huge!
