Summary
Ever since scientists first cloned Dolly, genetics has been a hot-button topic in the media and the political world. Authoritative texts that include interviews with experts, useful time lines, diagrams, glossaries, and more bring readers up to date on the latest findings of specific scientific issues and discoveries in the field of genetics, from the Human Genome Project to stem cell research to the National Geographic's own Genographic Project
