Genetic Selection

It seems to me…. “With the advent of genetic engineering, the time required for the evolution of new species may literally collapse.” ~ Dee Hock[1]. Evolutionary change has always been a long slow process extending over millennia but that is … Continue reading

Gene Therapy

It seems to me…. “We need 10,000 genomes, not 100, to start to understand the link between genetics, disease, and wellness.” ~ Craig Venter[1]. Medical progress, as in all science, advances based on the work of predecessors. Researchers publish experimental … Continue reading

The Genetic Impact

It seems to me… “The science of genetics is in a transition period, becoming an exact science just as the chemistry in the times of Lavoisier, who made the balance an indispensable implement in chemical research.”  ~ Wilhelm Ludvig Johannsen, … Continue reading
