Traditional medicine: A new look at nature’s treasures| Adventures in Genomics

November 29, 2017

Traditional medicine provides us with a huge untapped resource of potentially effective and safe drugs, that have been tested in humans for thousands of years. In this episode, Jacques and Irene traveled to Beijing, China, to interview Dr Chang Liu, the Deputy Director of the Center for Bioinformatics at the Institute of Medicinal Plant Development (IMPLAD) Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences. Dr Chang is applying genomic technologies to study the herbs used in Chinese traditional medicine to ensure the efficacy and safety of such compounds.
