Looking into a hidden world: seeing the changes to our genes that cause disease

New technology that lets us sequence tens of thousands of genes at once is transforming our understanding of disease. Using this technology, how deeply can a team of clinicians, statisticians, molecular biologists and computer experts see into the hidden world of our DNA? In this lecture Cris will describe how cascades of minute alterations to the DNA and RNA in our cells cause disease.

He will focus on the people and teams who have helped his rollercoaster ride from studying clover pasture enzymes, through spells in mountaineering medicine, gene knockouts and biotech companies, to the current excitement of genomics.
