Synopsis

Cloning and Genetic Engineering by Nicola Barber, Patience Coster, Jillian Powell

Would you clone your favourite pet? What impact is the Human Genome Project having on scientific and medical research? For supporters of genetic engineering, this technology has opened up a world of possibilities. But its opponents voice many concerns about the moral rights and wrongs of 'tampering with nature'. It's time to consider Both Sides of the Story. The series, Both Sides of the Story, explores the major global debates of our time from two opposing viewpoints. Each book investigates the facts behind the headlines, the history behind current trends and the latest hot topics.
