What will our lives be like fifty years from now? What will be know about ourselves as humans, and now will that affect our lives? It’s impossible to know the future for certain, but one thing we do know—perhaps nothing will alter our future more than the Genetics Revolution of the past thirty-five years. This book clarifies the history and examines the possible impact of five major areas of genetics research.

·         * The Human Genome Project and genetic engineering

·         * In vitro fertilization (IVF) and the technology of reproduction

·      * The Human Genome Diversity Project, which is studying the variation of the human genome

·         *  Embryonic stem-cell research

·         *  Cloning

All of these areas of research produce two reactions among the general public-hope for the improvement of people’s lives, and fear of science out of control.
