Unravelling the genome

  of  9

Unravelling the genome

Just reflect...

  • on the millions of base pairs that make up the human genome
  • on the efforts of scientists and technologists around the world deciphering the human genetic code
  • on the potential benefits that understanding the human genome will bring - and the issues that will need to be considered.

Knowledge of the human genome brings with it enormous power, and also great responsibilities.
