In this lecture, Eric Green discusses the advances made in genomics in the last 13 years, focusing on the importance of the Human Genome Project and the development of new technologies. He highlights the challenges faced by researchers in understanding the function of the human genome and notes that we are on the path to understanding and treating many more common diseases.
The genomic landscape is constantly changing and evolving, and in this video, Eric Green discusses some of the latest advances in the field. He talks about how genomic testing is being used more and more for rare and undiagnosed diseases, as well as for pregnancy. He also discusses the Precision Medicine Initiative, which is a large-scale effort in the United States to use genomic information to improve patient care.
