The Rough Guide to Genes and Cloning

Author(s): Jess Buxton


What exactly is a gene? How does cloning actually work? Are designer babies a bad idea? Could we ever clone a human? "The Rough Guide To Genes and Cloning" answers all these questions and more, from the inside story of cells and their structure and the sleuths who cracked the genetic code to DNA cloning, twins and Dolly, the sheep. Illustrated throughout with helpful pictures and diagrams, this Rough Guide turns the microscope on the things that make us what we are.
