DNA - CHANGING SCIENCE AND SOCIETY

DNA - CHANGING SCIENCE AND SOCIETY

Since the revelation of the double helical structure of DNA by Watson and Crick fifty years ago, research into this important molecule has had a dramatic impact on science and society. This volume brings together some of the key workers in the field to explore DNA fingerprinting, the extraction of DNA from archaeological and palaeontological remains; the ethical implications of the genetic knowledge encoded in DNA; the complex role of DNA in cancer research and reproductive medicine; and finally, how genetic disorders teach us about human communication.
