Big Genes and Little Genes

Have you ever wondered why some people are taller than others? Human height is largely under genetic control, but there is no "height gene." Instead, there are many, many genes that affect human height, and most of them have small effects that add up together with other ones. Sometimes, though, a person can have one genetic change that makes a big difference in their final height. Join Dr. Bill Gibson, Medical Geneticist and co-discoverer of Cohen-Gibson syndrome, for a short talk about genetic effects both large and small. Presented by Dr. William Gibson, Investigator, BC Children's Hospital; Professor, Department of Medical Genetics, Faculty of Medicine, UBC. (2021)
