Keeping Up With The Human Genome
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FNohF-eaWs
A presentation explaing how research on the human genome
is done using computer software. In this case ensembl is the program used.
Visit www.ensembl.org to access the discovered genes. For exmple, look for diabetes in humans
and you will be taken the chromosomes where related genes are present.
