"Was ist eine Genomdatenbank?"
Sven Nahnsen, CMFI Principal Investigator, guest on the science podcast "Der Code des Lebens".
Sven Nahnsen, head of the Quantitative Biology Center (QBiC) and member of the Cluster of Excellence CMFI, was a guest on the podcast Der Code des Lebens.
In the episode "Was ist eine Genomdatenbank?" he joins Andreas Bruns (University Hospital Heidelberg ) to talk about what a genome database is, what it is used for, and the role of data sharing.
About the podcast:
Der Code des Lebens is a science podcast of the German Human Genome Phenome Archive (GHGA) deals with different aspects of human genome research. Although we share 99% of our genetic material with each other, the small differences make us what we are. But how did our genetic material actually come into being? How does genome research work and how do our genes influence our daily lives? These questions and more are explored in "Der Code des Lebens." Listeners do not need any special prior knowledge to dive into the fascinating world of genes.
In each episode, the speakers Barbara Strobl and Janika Kiltz discuss a new exciting topic from the field of genome research with interview partners.
