CINEMA VERITAS
Sometimes a bit of storytelling helps the science go down. That's why we teamed up with Emmy Award-winning filmmaker, Dina Rudick, to create a video series to help educate consumers on the basics of genetics. Our Cinema Veritas playlist will get you up to speed on the basics of DNA, whole genome sequencing and more.
