Lecture no. 11 from the course: Understanding Genetics: DNA, Genes, and Their Real-World Applications
Taught by Professor David Sadava | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Learn how genetics is used to understand and work toward the cure of a particular disease. After methods for analyzing DNA and chromosomes were developed rapidly in the 1980s, the scientific community tried a new approach called reverse genetics. As a result of this work, scientists isolated the gene that is missing in individuals who have muscular dystrophy.
