This lecture from the iBioSeminars project is presented by David Botstein from Princeton University. It presents an overview of the benefits for science and society derived from sequencing the genomes of multiple organisms, including humans. The sequences show that many genes have been conserved during evolution; a finding that allows scientists to study simple organisms such as yeast and relate their findings to mammalian biology. In addition, mining genome sequences has identified numerous genes involved in human disease, in some cases resulting in improved screening and treatment. This video is the first of two, running 52:11 minutes and can be downloaded in QuickTime, MP4, M4V, or PDF formats. It can also be streamed on iTunes or YouTube.
