The genome's been mapped. yet what does it suggest? Arguably the main major clinical discovery of the recent century, the mapping of the twenty-three pairs of chromosomes that make up the human genome increases virtually as many questions because it solutions. Questions that may profoundly influence the best way we expect approximately affliction, approximately sturdiness, and approximately loose will.
