In the 2013 Holiday Lectures on Science, leading medical researchers explain how advances in genomics are revolutionizing their work, leading to a better understanding of disease and to improved treatments.
A brochure from the 2013 Holiday Lectures on Science.
Recent advances in DNA sequencing technology have led to a better understanding of the many genes that play a role in brain development.
Understanding that cancer is caused by mutations in genes that regulate cell proliferation has led to the development of targeted drug therapies.
Over the past decade, the application of advanced DNA sequencing techniques has greatly increased our understanding of the genetic basis of autism.
Genetic data from a large number of tumor types reveal commonly mutated genes and uncover connections between different types of cancer.
This Click and Learn describes how understanding the structure of the BCR-ABL kinase led to the development of an effective treatment for chronic myeloid leukemia.
Explore the phases, checkpoints, and protein regulators of the cell cycle in this highly interactive Click and Learn and find out how mutated versions of these proteins can lead to the development of cancer.
