New animation makes cancer genomics understandable for everyone

 BC Cancer Research Institute (2022 )

Helping people comprehend cancer genomics—especially those unfamiliar with the science of precision medicine—can be a challenge. To help illustrate the process and benefit of using genomic data for precision cancer treatment planning, BC Cancer’s Personalized OncoGenomics (POG) team—in collaboration with both cancer researchers and cancer patient partners that had no prior knowledge of the program—has developed a new animated video that communicates the science in plain vocabulary with engaging graphics in six languages.
