From 1951-54 Alan Turing worked on the early computers next door to the Manchester Museum to answer one of the mysteries of biology: how simple balls of living cells develop themselves into complex organisms. The timing of this work is closely connected with his conviction of gross indecency and 'treatment' with female sex hormone pills. The exhibition combines Turing's own notes, museum objects and 50s-inspired exhibition design, and is a celebration of Turing's single contribution to biology. Part of Manchester Pride Festival.
