Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tying the biochemistry to good storytelling will h 1. I have a good grounding in basic genetics so it was a review. . . I wonder if someone just had high school biology whether they would get a good handle on the DNA of cancer? 2. I don't think it was made particularly clear whether that 3200 (was this genes, base pairs, other?) loss/mutation of Great Apes DNA was a/several tumor suppressor genes, vs promoters, vs. some other mechanism (i.e. vascularization, etc) knocked out. 3. Overall, he made the points he intended to make in a way that was easily accessible and retained by a layperson (mutations prevent cells from functioning properly by preventing production of key molecules, shutting down processes, etc)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good beginning Good start to what will hopefully be a long series. Basic primer on what DNA is and how it works - and how things can impact people differently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enlightening I found Sam Kean's presentation outstanding. His presentation of the issues relating to cancer and dna easy to follow. I have taken a number of DNA courses but this one really opened my eyes to P53.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fascinating I found this lecture fascinating. It simply explained the genetics of cancer using interesting stories. Very well done. I hope this turns into a series

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Genetics of Cancer Was expecting a more in depth presentation. The presenter was good and a story to exemplify the concepts was satisfactory as well. I understand this was just a piolet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very interesting information! This was a great intro video. I would be interested in a longer series about the genetics of cancer.

Overview

Understand how cancer is a genetic disease that can stem from both hereditary flaws and DNA mutations, as you look through science and history with researcher and author Sam Kean.
The Genetics of Cancer

01: The Genetics of Cancer

We don’t normally think of cancer as a genetic disease, but it is. After Professor Kean provides the foundation of DNA, he details examples of how genetic flaws can be inherited, such as the BRCA genes, or how DNA mutations may not necessarily be inborn but rather caused by exposure to a chemical or to environmental hazards.
