Dr. Euan Ashley Unlocks the Mysteries of the Human Genome Sequence
On today's episode of Cool Science Radio:
John Wells and Lynn Ware Peek welcome Dr. Euan Ashley.
Dr. Ashley is taking us back 20 years to discuss the first draft of the human genome sequence.
Since then, medical “detectives” like Dr. Ashley have been using the genome to solve their patients’ most puzzling and pressing medical mysteries. They now understand that this complex and unique data set could be used to prevent disease, from the commonplace to those that cause global pandemics.
Dr. Ashley breaks it all down in his new book The Genome Odyssey: Medical Mysteries and the Incredible Quest to Solve Them.
