Can we influence our DNA with our thoughts? Can the microbiome be considered a new organ? Will babies be born "on demand"? What is promiscuous DNA? Will men become extinct? How does DNA fit into a cell? Can there be silicon-based life? Did life come from outer space?

Eduard Kejnovský, a member of the Learned Society who studies sex chromosome evolution and genome dynamics at the Institute of Biophysics of the Czech Academy of Sciences, answers questions like these in short YouTube videos (in Czech). He posted his first video a year and a half ago and now has over seventy videos on his channel.
