Chroniques génomiques - Les leçons inattendues d’Hiroshima
MetadataAfficher la notice complète
One of the initial motivations for the Genome project was to improve the detection of possible mutations in children of atomic bomb survivors. In fact it has proved very difficult to find any genetic effect in these descendants in spite of the strong irradiation suffered by their parents: this factual evidence is largely ignored in the current debates about the effects of radiation and the future of nuclear energy. Sequencing studies on this population would be very desirable.
