Signs of Life: Language and Meanings of DNA (Penguin science)

 
9780140230697: Signs of Life: Language and Meanings of DNA (Penguin science)

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.
