DNA, the hereditary code, is the basis of every living organism. Our knowledge in this area is advancing by leaps and bounds, but is poorly accessible to non-biologists. This book was written to change that. Using numerous examples, Ken Kraaijeveld transports the reader into the remarkable world of DNA, from modifications of crops, to changing genes to cure diseases.These examples show that DNA research influences many aspects of our lives, often without us realising it. If, as a critical consumer or patient, you wish to be able to think along, some help is appreciated. This richly illustrated book is the ideal companion.- Basic knowledge about DNA: what it is, what it does, and how it can be used- Everything about DNA in our daily lives: from agriculture to hospital- The possibilities of DNA research: promises and controversiesSummary in Dutch:DNA, de erfelijke code, is de basis van alles wat leeft. De kennis op dat gebied gaat met sprongen vooruit - maar is helaas voor niet-biologen slecht toegankelijk. Dit boek brengt daar verandering in. Aan de hand van talloze voorbeelden neemt auteur Ken Kraaijeveld de lezer mee in de wondere wereld van het DNA, van het aanpassen van landbouwgewassen tot het veranderen van genen om ziektes te genezen.De voorbeelden laten zien dat DNA-onderzoek invloed heeft op veel aspecten van ons leven, vaak zonder dat wij ons dat realiseren. Wie als kritische consument of patient wil kunnen meedenken, kan daarom wel wat hulp gebruiken. Dit rijk geillustreerde boek is daarvoor ideaal.- Basiskennis over DNA: wat is het, wat doet het, hoe kun je het gebruiken- Alles over DNA in ons dagelijks leven, van landbouw tot ziekenhuis- De mogelijkheden van DNA-onderzoek: beloften en controverses
