Genetic screening is one of the most powerful tools used in biological sciences, allowing researchers to learn more about genetic interactions and risk factors. Outside of the lab, genetic screening has transformed the way some diseases, including certain cancers, are treated. Join Sneha Das, M.Sc., as she discusses how genetic screening works, unpacks some of the latest research, and highlights how this tool is helping researchers and clinicians better understand and treat diseases.
