Untangling Alzheimer's Secrets | Adventures in Genomics


Alzheimer’s Disease is characterized by the presence of plaques and tangles inside an individual’s brain. Despite this clear pathological definition, the predisposing factors and effects of these plaques and tangles are unclear. On this Adventures in Genomics episode, Jacques and Irene speak to Amanda Myers from the University of Miami, who is using a combination of genomics, transcriptomics, and proteomics to identify networks of data and explain the complexity of this disease.
