Genetic engineering dreams and nightmares.
Part of a three-part series presented by David Cove, coauthor of A primer of genetics. Dr. Cove addresses the mechanics of DNA replication and the subject of genetic engineering. This episode discusses how organisms replicate. Dr. David Cove describes the structure and function of DNA as he covers how coding sequences and promoters work together to create proteins from amino acids.

Genetic engineering dreams and nightmares.
Part of a three-part series presented by David Cove, coauthor of A primer of genetics. Dr. Cove addresses the mechanics of DNA replication and the subject of genetic engineering. This episode surveys past and probable future applications of genetic engineering while presenting possible benefits and liabilities. The case is stated for genetically modified crops; microorganism-produced human insulin; engineered vaccines, which involve no disease-causing microbes; and the diagnosis and cure of gene-based diseases.
