Scanning Life's Matrix: Genes, Proteins, and Small Molecules
The sequencing of the human genome has set the stage for a vast revolution in the biomedical sciences. In four presentations featuring state-of-the-art animations and compelling graphics, Dr. Stuart L. Schreiber and Dr. Eric S. Lander open a window onto the fast-paced world of genomic science and chemical genetics. Dr. Lander explains how an understanding of small variations in DNA among individuals can help solve the mysteries of certain human diseases, and in particular, how DNA microarrary technology¿gene chips¿can be used to improve cancer diagnosis and guide treatment. Dr. Schreiber examines how technological advances coupled with data from the genome projects have energized chemistry¿s contributions to biology and medicine.
Presented at HHMI¿s 2002 Holiday Lectures on Science. Two videos, VHS, approx. 240 min.
