A simple guide to the basic concepts of genetic engineering and other gene technologies.
You don't need to be a professor of biology - or any type of scientist at all - to understand the basics of 'genetic engineering', 'cloning' and 'gene therapy'. All you need is this book... Unravelling Genes explains the principles of genetic engineering using a minimum of jargon. You'll learn how 'genetically modified' foods are created and will understand the new technologies that led to the cloning of Dolly the sheep. Gene therapy and its application in the treatment of diseases such as Alzheimers, cystic fibrosis and haemophilia is also demystified, giving you the information you need to form your own conclusions about these cutting-edge technologies. ..'This is an outstanding book, long overdue. It presents a simple and enjoyable Cook's tour of genetic engineering, which is easily understood and yet does not lose any of the sense of sophistication and excitement of this new science.'..John Mattick, Professor of Molecular Biology at the University of Queensland and Director of the Australian Genome Research Facility.
