"Nothing about biology makes sense unless it is seen in the light of evolution." In this episode, host Gregg Fisher of Quent Capital speaks with Dan-Avi Landau, one of the leading cancer researchers and data scientists in the world. In this fascinating conversation, Landau zeros in on cancer's anarchic role in the story of human evolution, and describes the extraordinary leaps forward he and his colleagues are making in the mapping of the human genome. There may be no more urgent territory for big data to be taking on than health care and cancer treatment, and Dan-Avi's work represents the bleeding edge of what is, and what will be, possible.
