This volume brings together some of the key workers in the field to explore DNA fingerprinting, the extraction of DNA from archaeological and palaeontological remains- the ethical implications of the genetic knowledge encoded in DNA- the complex role of DNA in cancer research and reproductive medicine- and finally, how genetic disorders teach us about human communication.
