The Real Life Superheroes Who Allow Doctors to Learn From Their Genetic Mutations to Help Others

In his latest video, Jake Roper of VSauce3 discusses the concept of mutations, explains what happens when cells mutate and praises the real life superheroes who allow doctors to learn from their own genetic mutations in order to help other people conquer their own illnesses.
