FREE PREVIEW

Hopes for precision medicine is high. Marston Linehan discusses working to identify the gene associated with kidney cancer. Francis Collins recalls leading the Human Genome Project. Craig Venter uses shotgun sequencing to accelerate gene discovery; Collins and Venter become competitors.

Personalized Medicine (03:49)

In June 2000, Collins and Venter publicly present the human genome. Linehan discusses identifying kidney cancer genes and targeted drug therapy. Alex Dinh discusses his diagnosis, genetic testing, and treatment.
