This title explains how DNA is put together and how its code is read and acted upon by the cell to make proteins. This book explores genetic engineering and gene therapy as well as the highly controversial areas of stem cell research and cloning. Up-to-date examples are given, such as the recent use of blood from a baby¹s umbilical cord to provide stem cells for the testing of new drugs.
