The Dog Genome: Shedding Light on Human Disease

Saturday, March 15, 2014 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Dogs have been called a person’s best friend, but they also can tell us a lot about human disease. On March 15, 2014 at the National Museum of Natural History, Dr. Elaine Ostrander discussed how her lab at the National Human Genome Research Institute studies the genes of canines (dogs) in order to better understand human diseases, such as cancer.

The event was part of a series of programs in the new Q?rius Learning Center at the National Museum of Natural History.

The event video lasts just over an hour, and is closed captioned.
