DNA: the secret of life /James D. Watson, with Andrew Berry
DNA has come a long way. However, it is also clear that the science of molecular biology—what DNA can do for us—still has a long way to go. Cancer still has to be cured; effective gene therapies for genetic diseases still have to be developed; genetic engineering still has to realize its phenomenal potential for improving our food.
But all these things will come. The first fifty years of the DNA revolution witnessed a great deal of remarkable scientific progress as well as the initial application of that progress to human problems. The future will sec many more scientific advances, but increasingly the focus will be on DNA’s ever greater impact on the way we live.
