All our educational materials are free online for anyone to access. We also ship DVDs to educators in North America (Canada, Mexico, the U.S., and its territories)

Sixty years after Watson and Crick revealed the structure of the DNA double helix and only a decade after scientists published the first complete sequence of the human genome, the ability to routinely sequence and analyze individual genomes is revolutionizing the practice of medicine.

In the 2013 Holiday Lectures on Science, Charles L. Sawyers of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Christopher A. Walsh of Boston Children’s Hospital will reveal the breathtaking pace of discoveries into the genetic causes of various types of cancers and diseases of the nervous system, and discuss the impact of those discoveries on our understanding of normal human development and disease.

This DVD set includes detailed chapter search by scientific topic; direct access to animations; English and Spanish subtitles; interviews with the speakers; and discussions with the speakers as well as a discussion session on dog genomic research.

Presented at HHMI's 2013 Holiday Lectures on Science. Two discs, lecture time approx. 240 min.
