DNA - The Next Generation
ABC News correspondent Robert Krulwich hosts a program featuring Nobel laureate James Watson and former NHGRI Director Francis Collins who discuss the history and future of human genetics.
This webcast was created as a part of the April 2003 celebration of the historic culmination of one of the most important scientific projects in history: the sequencing of the human genome. In addition, April 2003 marked the 50th anniversary of another momentous achievement in biology: James Watson and Francis Crick's Nobel Prize winning description of the DNA double helix.
