Anthropological Genetics: Its Impact on Human Population Studies and Its Potential Influence on Drug Development

  • If you haven't already done so - please go to The GENcast Network, listen to the latest podcast on Anthropological Genetics with Dennis O'Rourke, Ph.D., and respond to the following questions:

    Are significant numbers of promising genomics-based drugs being discovered and moving into the clinic based on the study of the human genome?

    Besides biology, chemistry and anthropology, are there any other academic disciplines that are making, or should be making, significant contributions to improving our understanding of the human genome and its potential to improve human health?
