Benefits of Science (DNA)
The deoxyribonucleic acid which is also known as the DNA is a molecule that is complex and has the relevant information that is required to build and maintain an organism and almost all the cells in a multicellular organism has the full set of DNA that is required within that specific organism. In this discussion, we are going to talk about the various ways in which DNA has been quite productive to our society. Through disease diagnosis and also treatment especially for the diseases that were said to be very serious and which their treatment was not able to be found DNA has been able to come up with a breakthrough drug and treatment for patients suffering from such kind of illnesses. The study and research of DNA have enabled individuals to be able to know how they react to certain diseases and this has also brought about customization of drugs that are able to complement the individual’s biochemistry and genetic makeup.
When it comes to paternity and the legal impact DNA has been quite crucial and this is because the paternity cases have great impact on families and children all over the world and through the use of DNA the paternity of a child can actually be done and therefore it will have a significant effect on the child’s upbringing. DNA has played a very crucial role when it comes to capturing culprits who may be involved in cases such as rape cases and other cases and therefore it has led to such kind of culprits being convicted. It shows that the presence of DNA is very important because it has brought about a lot of solutions in the forensic world.
The impact of DNA in agriculture is very important and this is because it has enabled farmers being able to breed animals that are more resistant to certain diseases and at the same time are able to produce more nutritious produce which has contributed to a reduction in micronutrient deficiency especially in developing countries. A lot of research and study has been put on the discovery of DNA that has brought about the revolution of medicine, agriculture, forensics, paternity and many other crucial that areas in the society today and it will also lead to new discoveries in the future on DNA. The science of DNA has been able to be seen that it not only affects the medical world but also the society that we live in and therefore a lot of decisions have been made due to the discovery of DNA. In this chapter, we have been discussing the different ways in which DNA has been of great importance to both the individual and also the society at large.
