Advanced Genetics Part 1

March 20, 2024


A SNP is the simplest and most common mutation. In fact, there are more than 100 million SNPs in the human genome. 

Each time one of the cells in your body divides to form a new cell, 3 BILLION genetic letters must be accurately duplicated. That’s a big number and mistakes DO happen in everyone. That’s right, if you’re reading this, you have a genetic mutation.

On This Episode We Discuss:

  • Your genetic alphabet – nucleotides
  • How to think about DNA Replication
  • Types of mutations
  • What is an SNP and why you should care
  • Indels
  • The genetic code
  • How is genetic information translated into a protein

The host of the show is Dr. Stanley Crooke, a scientist, a physician, an entrepreneur and the father of antisense technology. Dr. Crooke is responsible for driving the development of antisense or ASO technology, an RNA-targeted technology responsible for the commercialization of three best- and first-in class medicines and more than 40 drugs in development. In 2020, Stan formed n-Lorem to use this powerful technology to develop experimental personalized ASO medicines for nano-rare patients (1 to 30 patients worldwide) for free, for life.


Hosted by: Dr. Stan Crooke.
Videographer: Jon Magnuson of Mighty One Productions.
Producers: Colin Delaney, Kira Dineen, Jon Magnuson, Andrew Serrano and Amy Williford
