Dear Jewelle, Along the lines of items that might be
of interest to some of our membership, there was a
program on PBS in Richmond, Virginia last week that
comes on each weekend (either Saturday or Sunday, I
believe) with the word "Sequence" in its title. It
focuses on genetics, but the material is presented so
that everybody can understand it. Last weekend the
program covered genealogical applications to genetics.
A group of geneticists studying genetic diseases like
Cystic Fibroses, Crutchfield Jacobs, and Sickle Cell
Anemia, and even cancer, decided to do their research
in Iceland on Icelandics because the population there
is predominantly homogenous, and the people have kept
family records going back for several centuries--in
other words, everyone knows exactly who he is and who
everybody else is, too! The geneticists have found
that they can pinpoint the gene for many inherited
diseases and that they can even do the same for
certain types of cancer. These same geneticists have
also discovered that they can through these
genealogical records predict the probability of one of
these Islanders coming down or passing on one or
another of these diseases. PBS programs can always be
ordered. The web is http://www.PBS.org
these geneticists have discovered that they can use
the HIV virus to treat some genetic diseases, like
Sickle Cell, by genetically altering the ability of
the HIV virus to reproduce itself. This group is now
working on using the HIV virus to treat other
diseases, among them Crohn's Disease. Diabetes is
another disease under investigation by these
geneticists. For more information, people can access
the PBS website. Carol
