Lecture no. 18 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
How do scientists detect particular genes that cause certain diseases? Professor Sadava details chemical processes used for genetic screening, and gives several examples of successful genetic tests and results. He describes testing for the effects of genes on drug susceptibility as the next frontier in screening technology.
