Genomics research in health and the environment is constantly evolving. Many scientific breakthroughs are being made and the results are increasingly promising. The Génome Québec Multimedia Gallery gives readers access to photos, videos and audio clips that demonstrate how genomics is playing a pivotal role in the future of Québec.
Finding the culprit behind lactic acidosis
In 1999, Pierre Lavoie undertook a worthy challenge: to pedal 600 km, day and night, in order to raise awareness and research funds for lactic acidosis, a disease that had taken two of his four children. For Pierre, it was time to act. A research team headed by Dr. John D. Rioux shared his enthusiasm. Their goal was to find the gene responsible for lactic acidosis. (in french)
