Genomics: What potential does understanding our genetic playbook hold?

Thanks to advances in technology and genetics research, we can now decode DNA sequences, understand the genetic origins of disease, discover the evolutionary history of species, and develop technologies to engineer new biological solutions to societal problems. While our understanding of the genetic codes of life allows us to do amazing things, the study of genomics also raises questions about the how scientific information is used. Read these articles and interviews to hear directly from biologists who are engaged in this cutting-edge science, so that you can make your own informed decisions.
