#4 Schizophrenia, 8 Disorders 9/29/14
Dr. John Malone, a professor at UCONN in the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology, presented his research for students which I recap. I plug the grand opening of Jackson Laboratories in Farmington, CT, Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine on October, 8th 2014. Major news story is the new research that Schizophrenia has been revealed to be 8 genetically distinct disorders. Background information on Gregor Mendel is shared. The genetic disorder of the week is Cystic Fibrosis which is explained on the show.
