The Human Genome Project

Regular price $89.00 $0.00

The human genome project has been described as the largest biological project ever undertaken.  The program assumes no knowledge of genetics: it begins by outlining the essentials of genes, chromosomes, mutations, DNA structure and the ‘base sequence’ genetic code it carries.
It then examines:

  • the main steps in the project
  • Major applications of the results (especially genetic testing and the role of genes in disease)
  • Important moral, social and legal issues raised

The implications of the Human Genome Project for biology and medicine are enormous, and a basic understanding of what it is about is important for everyone.
