about this item

Newton, a freelance writer of nonfiction books and ancillary materials for young adults, offers a reference handbook that explains DNA technology. It outlines the development of DNA technologies and their scientific principles, focusing on forensic science, cloning, transgenic plants and animals, gene therapy and genetic testing, and molecular farming; social, ethical, political, and other issues involved in their development; international aspects of debates over DNA technology; a chronology of key events; and biographical sketches of key individuals and organizations. Also provided are data and political and legal documents from the US and around the world. This edition has been updated to incorporate scientific and technical changes since the first edition, such as the discovery and use of gene-editing techniques like CRSPR-Cas9, zinc finger nucleases, and other types of gene-editing protocols, and the developing significance of low copy number DNA technology, along with the everyday challenges created by these technologies. It also has updated information on older technologies and issues, such as the development of genetically modified crops, animals, and foods, and the application of DNA analysis in the forensic sciences.
