This episode also comes from Genome BC’s Annual Genomics Forum. This discussion examines the importance of not sensationalizing data and being clear what the science means. Overly emotive clickbait stories do more harm than good. How can you help break the chain of misinformation?BROWSE EPISODES
This episode discusses the public health response to Covid-19 aided by genomics. Speed from sequencing to public health response: data drives course which requires flexibility to adjust and adapt accordingly. Vaccine has been produced at an unprecedented pace using a novel mRNA based technology which now allows us to update it taking only a few days to in response to the emerging escape variants.BROWSE EPISODES
COVID-19 with a relatively low R factor and mortality rate has challenged our health care system, society in general and our economy. Canada and the rest of the world were caught rather unprepared. The next virus may be more transmissible and deadlier. How do we make sure we are better prepared as the world, as a country and as a province? Hear from the experts.BROWSE EPISODES

Through the life sciences lens, genomics combines biology, genetics and computer science to provide important insights into disease which is enabling us to develop new treatments and innovative medical devices. Genomics is also enabling an understanding of our natural resources, guiding our ability to adapt to changing conditions, aiding in economic development, and environmental conservation.
Join host Randene Neill for Genome BC’s podcast, the Code of Life, as she covers a broad range of topics about how these transformative technologies are impacting our lives every day.
