The Genome Odyssey: Medical Mysteries and the Incredible Quest to Solve Them
Thursday, March 4, 2021
Join us for a talk with renowned Stanford professor Dr. Euan Ashley, author of just-published book The Genome Odyssey. Ashley brings the breakthroughs of precision medicine to vivid life through the real diagnostic journeys of his patients and the tireless efforts of his fellow doctors and scientists as they hunt to define, detect, and defeat disease. Hear about how Ashley led the team that was the first to analyze and interpret a complete human genome, how they broke genome speed records to diagnose and treat patients, and how medicine can be tailored to treat specific diseases as well as to decode pathogens like viruses at the genomic level. This program is presented by the library's Biotechnology Learning Center.
