3y ago
Thanks to Scientific research, our knowledge about the human genome has increased significantly in recent years. We now have a much better understanding of disease – what causes them, the risks associated, how we might prevent them, diagnosis and treatment. And the more we understand, the more enhanced and developed our genomic tools and technologies are becoming. These advances mean we can look forward to better health in the future and not just for individuals but for populations as well. The Genuity Science podcast hopes to shed some light on some of these breakthroughs and why they are so ..read more
