A new model for understanding gene mutations
When something in our genome changes, how does that show up in the rest of the system?
Fritz Roth, Co-Director of CIFAR’s Genetic Networks program, wants to understand which of these mutations don’t matter and which of them could translate into diseases. His dream is a model that can test all possible mutations in a gene ahead of time so that when someone comes into the clinic with a mutation, we’ll already know if it’s a problem.
