Which diseases are determined genetically, and how are they passed on from parents to their children? Is intelligence genetically determined? Can gene therapy cure all our genetic diseases? Can genetic engineering solve the problem of world famine? Are genetically-engineered organisms a threat to the Earth's ecology? Should people be discriminated against by insurance companies and employers because of their genes? Who should make decisions about ethical problems created by genetic engineering? These and related questions are addressed in this clear account of genetic engineering, a new technology which will soon touch all our lives.
