LearnOutLoud.com Review

The Human Genome Project has been in business since 1990 and started with the intention of following Japanese survivors of the nuclear bomb and how their genomes were affected by the radiation. In this video the the speaker, Eric Lander, talks about this historic event and the progress of sequencing the human genome. He talks about the consequences of having the genome sequenced and sheds some light on the future of the human genome.


Dr. Lander is a geneticist, molecular biologist and a mathematician, with research interests in human genetics, mouse genetics, population genetics and computational and mathematical methods in biology.

He and his research group have developed many of the tools of modern genome research including genomic maps of the human, mouse and rat genomes in connection with the Human Genome Project and techniques for genetic analyses of complex, multigenic traits. He has applied these techniques to the understanding of cancer, diabetes, hypertension, renal failure and dwarfism.
