I hear that the Human Genome Project has mapped out the thousands of genes in human DNA. They’ve put all of this information in a database. This is a monumental achievement, in my opinion, as it will enable scientists to trace out the origins of many diseases and sicknesses which are still without cures.
I realize that there will also be ethical questions about these kinds of issues, especially when it comes to opening up the possibility for cloning. But in the long run, the pros far outweigh the cons. Many people will be helped by the discoveries that come from gene research.
