The topic of this book, biotechnology, is about gene manipulation. The authors will explain how genetic modification can enhance and repair DNA at the molecular level to cure genetic conditions, better plant growth, diagnose and fix major genetic disorders, and cancer, as well as learning about the human genome.

In addition, some ethical and legal cases are presented and a new tool, CRISPR, is explained. It will move biotechnology along on a brisk yet comprehensible pace.
