Genetics of Cancer

While I was browsing the internet for news on NGS and cancer sequencing, I came across the YouTube link below.  The famous oncologist Bert Vogelstein gave this amazing talk about genetics of cancer over a year ago.

Although it’s a long talk, it is worth while watching at least the first part of the talk.
