Description
Description: The human genome, the DNA content in each of our cells, presents us with a vast frontier containing answers to many questions about how we evolved, how we are related to other living things, and how we differ from one another. The Human Genome Project is opening up that territory to our understanding. LANL scientists were instrumental in getting the DOE involved in this project and in this volume present an introduction to the tools of genetics and molecular biology and to the philosophy and early accomplishments of the Project. At the time the volume was written, scientists and the public were anticipating the new genetic knowledge while physicians, lawyers, social scientists, and philosophers were anticipating the impact of that information on our institutions, our health care, and our individual lives. As the cover illustration suggests, the Human Genome Project is ushering in a future in which we are more aware of both our human potential and limitation.
