Summary
"Professor Dyer examines the wide-ranging field of genetics, which is the study of the hereditary information of organisms, how it is used, and how it is transferred through generations. These lectures also address DNA sequences and how they apply to "genetic engineering," viruses, and genetic diseases such as cancers and birth defects. In addition to examining why people look and act the way they do, the course also considers the philosophical issues associated with such controversial topics as cloning and genetic ID cards."--Container
