From the Publisher
"The book explores issues surrounding research into stem cells, cells' building blocks; eugenics, breeding for desirable traits; cloning, cell and laboratory implants; and gene splicing, introducing a new gene into genetic matter, among other things."
"Herring takes a balanced approach in his description of this controversial issue, starting with a review of public perceptions of genetic engineering and the history of the field from Mendel onward. He explains the techniques and how they apply to plants, animals and humans, the treatment of disease, the use of DNA in court cases, and future trends. General readers and students will find the well-chosen biography especially helpful."
