Bioengineering Lecture

"Is the Genome Useful in Medicine?"
Steve Quake, Professor of Bioengineering, Department of Bioengineering, Stanford University

 

We are living in the genome age, where the productivity of DNA

sequencers is advancing faster that Moore's Law. I will describe

one contribution of biophysics in this eld - the development of

the rst single molecule DNA sequencer. I will then go on to discuss

several applications of high-throughput DNA sequencing in

medicine, ranging from non-invasive diagnostics to the rst

clinically annotated human genome.
