Presents key concepts in molecular genetics. This video explains - through a combination of live-action sequences of scientists at work, professional figure skater Dorothy Hamill, wildlife, interviews with two Nobel laureates, and clear animated graphics - how all life processes are ultimately directed by the formation stored in genes. Today's molecular scientists are on the verge of creating a 'new' medicine where the patient's genetic structure will be altered to effect a cure. Plants are now being engineered to thrive where none could survive before and yield sufficient quantities to feed a hungry planet.
