DNA Sequence Technology Improves Cancer Treatment
This video explores how advances in DNA sequencing technology have improved cancer diagnosis and treatment.
Physician Charles Sawyers explains how sequencing the DNA of individual cells can help scientists search for mutations associated with cancer. He discusses how it may be possible to serially track the course of cancer treatment by sequencing DNA in the blood of patients.
