Guest: Elaine Ostrander, PhD, Distinguished Investigator, National Institutes of Health, Chief of Cancer Genetics and Comparative Genomics Virtually anyone can take a DNA test to confirm where they’re from. These tests have become commonplace ever since scientists at the National Institutes of Health finished mapping the entire human genome. And now they’re turning their attention to man’s best friend. The Dog Genome Project has so far shed light on where certain breeds originated and how they came to be so different from one another. Believe it or not, the Dog Genome Project could also yield important insight for human health. Learn more by visiting the National Human Genome Research Institute online here.
