Gene Therapy Hazards And Benifits

Gene Therapy Hazards And Benifits

Gene therapy involves insertion of genes into an individual's cells and tissues to treat chronic disease and genetic disorders in which an impaired mutant gene is replaced with a functional gene. A broader definition of gene therapy includes all applications of DNA technology to treat disease. Although the technology is still in its experimental stages, it holds great promise for treating inherited and incurable diseases. More...

Facts About Human Genome Project

Facts Human Genome Project

Started in 1990, the Human Genome Project is an international scientific research project with the primary objective of determining the sequence of chemical base pairs that make up DNA. Another objective was to identify and map the estimated 25000 genes that make up the human genome. The broad overall purpose was to understand the genetic makeup of the human species. The final report was completed in 2003 with ongoing addenda being added periodically. More...
