Genes & Your Health Edition: Epigenomics Research – Understanding Genetics of Treatment Resistance

Guest:   Alexandre Gaspar Maia, Ph.D. (@gasparma1a)

Host: Denise M. Dupras, M.D., Ph.D.

Epigenomics is a fascinating field in which researchers chart the locations and understand the functions of all chemical tags that mark the genome. The epigenome is the first boundary from the exterior world to our DNA sequence, and it can change dramatically. This episode discusses the state of the art of epigenomics analysis and the epigenome in the context of specific cells. Additionally, it explores the future of epigenomics for individualized medicine and in better understanding genetics of treatment resistance. The guest for this episode is Alexandre Gaspar Maia, Ph.D., an assistant professor in the Functional Genomics Laboratory at Mayo Clinic.
