    Biotechnology Sparks Disease Fighting Gene Therapies


    by dm_503293f8bdea3

    The Genetic Revolution Unfolds: Francis Crick, Rosa lynn Franklin and James Watson were the first drum majors in the current genetic procession with the discovery of the helical structure and chemical makeup of D N A in 1953. The sequencing of the human genome, recombinant gene technology, stem cells, nanotechnology, exponential duplication of gene fragments and techniques that purify and isolate genes soon followed. Out of these biotechnologies hundreds of disease genes have been identified. Many can be manipulated in gene, stem cell and nanotech therapies.
