Reading the Genome
by noteworthy at 1:44 am EDT, Jun 15, 2004

The director of bioinformatics at the Salk Institute will be giving a seminar this week at PARC in Palo Alto. Video for past events is posted to the web; check back later if you are interested but cannot attend.

We each carry about 850 MB of DNA blueprint to our bodies.

The recent decoding of the human genome has received much acclaim, but as you might expect from any code that had been patched and revised over a few billion years -- it's not the easiest to understand!

This talk will look at how we are looking at the genome, what it is telling us about our fundamental biology, and how we can apply it to live longer and healthier lives.

The genome is also ushering a revolution in biology, moving from a focused hypothesis-driven discipline to one where complexity and data are emergent.
