Genetics demystifies one of the fastest-growing areas of science today. Students will explore DNA fingerprinting--what it is and why it is carried out. They'll also find a discussion of genetic engineering, its potential hazards, and whether or not "designing life" could introduce untold benefits or massive trouble. Finally, they'll discover how researchers are tackling genetic diseases and learn about the growing use of bioengineered medicines.
