DNA contains the blueprint for life on earth, wrapped up into chromosomes at the heart of every living cell. Prof. Karim Labib of the University of Dundee discusses how cells preserve their heritage, by passing on their chromosomes from one generation to the next, and considers what this process can tell us about the evolution of the first cell.
