Signs of Life: The Language And Meanings of DNA (Penguin science)

by RobertPollack (Author)

Synopsis

It's barely 40 years ago that James Watson and Francis Crick discovered the code of law that governs inheritance, the base-pairing rules of DNA. Since then, there has been an explosion of knowledge: scientists can now manipulate DNA to correct a damaged cell, nurture an endangered embryo, arrest degenerative diseases, detect foetal chromosome abnormalities and even secure convictions by genetic fingerprinting. The underlying potential of such a powerful knowledge creates grounds for an explosive ethical and legal debate.
