15047. Promises of genomics, David Botstein
David Botstein (sitting with Pat Brown) talks about how innovations in genomics might lead to personalized medicine.
15045. Why tumor typing is important, David Botstein
David Botstein talks about how tumor typing using genome-wide analysis will help doctors determine the most appropriate treatments for their patients.
15046. Better cancer therapies by identifying oncogenes, David Botstein
David Botstein discusses how identifying the molecular mechanisms of cancer will lead to the development of improved therapies.
1714. Yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae)
Yeast was the first eukaryote organism to have its entire genome sequenced. It has remained at the forefront of genetics research because it is quick and easy to grow.
15048. Better diagnosis, David Botstein
David Botstein talks about the goal of using microarray analysis to improve cancer diagnosis.
15566. Model organisms (yeast, bacteria, mouse, fruit fly)
Model organisms such as yeast, bacteria, the mouse and the fruit fly are used by researchers to study biological systems. The genomes of these organisms have been mapped and sequenced.

555. Model Organisms
A human is a complicated organism, and it is considered unethical to do many kinds of experiments on human subjects. For these reasons, biologists often use simpler “model” organisms that are easy to keep and manipulate in the laboratory.
