Futures in Biotech 54: Personal Genome Project - Leo's Genome?

Guest

Dr. George Church, Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School and Director of the Center for Computational Genetics


Topic

We are now at the crossroads of Genomics and Personalized Medicine. Dr. Church is forging the way. Church and his team at the Personal Genome Project hope to sequence 100,000 human genomes within the next few years. These people will be able to make medical decisions based on their molecular anatomy rather than their 'family history'. Moreover, the scientific community will have an enormous database in which they can mine. This will inevitably will lead to a better understanding of the molecular basis of disease. Church and his team will change medicine as we know it.
