Details

From their Web site, June 2002: "The Gene CRC utilises several of Australia's strategic genetic resources to identify disease susceptibility genes in a range of areas, including cancer, metabolic disorders, immunological disorders, women's health and public health. Furthermore, the Gene CRC provides a platform for a high level of debate in the community regarding human genetics."
