Closing the gap between genotype and phenotype

Video Genetic Networks 12.07.2017

In a couple of years sequencing your genome will cost less than a trip to the grocery store, explains Brendan Frey in this video produced in partnership with Research2Reality.

But can we do anything with this knowledge? Closing the gap between gene mutations and the resulting physical characteristics is one of the most pressing problems facing researchers right now. At the interface of CIFAR’s Genetic Networks and Learning in Machines & Brains programs, Frey is taking an informatics approach to find the answers.
