Dolly Pops Up…


Did you know that Edinburgh has been a world leader in genetics for over a century? And that there’s definitely more to cloning than just Dolly the sheep? Come to the Pop-Up Library on the first floor of the Main Library between 10 and 12 tomorrow (28th) to learn about the fascinating animal genetics collections revealed by the Towards Dolly project, and have some fun while you’re at it. Don’t miss the chance to win some fabulous prizes (including ‘Dolly’ Mixtures, naturally). And yes, there will be a sheep drawing contest.

Don’t be a drone, be a clone – see you there!
