    DNA differences could be linked to diseases

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cambridgeshire-14493448

    This short BBC video is about a large research centre that has been set up to investigate the large number of small individual differences in large numbers of people's DNA to investigate different diseases.

    "Research at the Sanger Institute in Cambridgeshire has led scientists to believe diseases like cancer and diabetes could be linked to minute variations in DNA.

    "Scientists say minute differences in that pattern, shared by different people, could hold the clue."
